Understatement of the Day

Headline on the American Airlines website:

Aircraft Inspections Affect Some AA Travel

As compared to the story in the New York Times:

American Airlines canceled another 900 flights on Thursday, or about 40 percent of its daily total of 2,300, after making only slight progress in getting its 300 MD-80 jetliners flying again.

Forty percent is more than just “some.”

I just hope everything’s back to normal again before my annual pilgrimage to the William Inge Theatre Festival at the end of the month.
