American Airlines Makes 8 Emergency Landings in 2 Months

For those of you keeping track at home, the last two months haven't been good karma months for American Airlines and apparently grounding their entire MD-80 fleet for FAA inspections hasn't had the impact the flying world wished.

In the last two months, American Airlines has made 8 emergency landings, here is the time line:

August 5 - Emergency Landing at Los Angeles and JFK in New York (2 in 1 day)
July 26th - Emergency Landing in New Orleans LA
July 13th - Emergency Landing in Dallas Fort Worth
July 10th - Emergency Landing in Dallas Fort Worth
July 9th - Emergency Landing in Dallas Fort Worth
July 8th - Emergency Landing in Little Rock Arkansas
June 30th Emergency Landing in Oklahoma

For those of you tracking odds, I definitely wouldn't fly American Airlines out of DFW airport in Dallas for a while, that seems to be a black cat kinda place for them.
