 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - American Airlines has canceled dozens of flights as it scrambles to fix seats that could pop loose during flight.
     The airline said Thursday that it has come up with a fix, and it began pulling planes out of service to make repairs. 
     Airline officials say the work will be done by Saturday.
     Seats came loose on three recent flights involving planes that had been recently refurbished. Seats had been removed and reinstalled as part of the overhaul.
     American inspected 48 planes earlier this week but returned them all to flying after fixing problems with seats on some of the planes - officials didn't have a precise number.
