DALLAS  — American Airlines has stopped flights heading to Dallas, Chicago and Miami because of a computer-systems problem.

The Federal Aviation Administration says American planes destined for Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, O’Hare Airport in Chicago and Miami International Airport are being held on the ground.
