DALLAS (AP) -- American Airlines has canceled 850 more flights as it reinspects the wiring on its MD-80 jets.

American spokesman Tim Wagner says 208 of those flights canceled Wednesday are at the carrier's main hub at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The nation's largest carrier canceled nearly 500 flights on Tuesday.

It's the second wave of cancellations at American over the same issue.

American is inspecting and -- if necessary -- reworking wiring bundles on its MD-80 aircraft to comply with federal safety rules.

The airline operates about 2,300 daily flights. Airline officials say passenger safety was never compromised.
