In a statement, the airline cited inclement and severe weather as the main cause of the delays and flight adjustments, that will be in effect through at least mid-July.

"The first few weeks of June have brought unprecedented weather to our largest hubs, heavily impacting our operation and causing delays, canceled flights and disruptions to crew member schedules and our customers' plans," the airline said.

American also said it is dealing with company-wide labor shortages -- coupled with an "incredibly quick ramp up of customer demand."

Customers who booked flights through July 15 will be getting a notification if their travel plans have been impacted.
