Yahoo Airlines/Aviation news has a story that 15 outbound and 24 outbound flights scheduled for
Thursday morning have been cancelled due to
what AA calls an "illegal" work action. Presumably
the two AA daylight flights to Heathrow are among
those to be cancelled (AA 142 and AA 106) which
depart at 8:30 and 9:30 as well as the morning
bank of flights to SFO and LAX and Caribbean
