The impact of a sudden ransomware cyber-attack on the Colonial Pipeline. This has put the airlines and transportation industry on alert. It is reported American Airlines has added a stop to two long-haul flights out of Charlotte, North Carolina because of a fuel supply shortage after shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline.

American is the first U.S. airline to report an impact form the attack on Colonial Pipeline which carries nearly half the fuel consumed along the U.S. East Coast.
In a statement, American announced:

“We are closely monitoring the situation and working around the clock to ensure that we have an adequate supply of fuel across out network.” The two impacted flights are expected to return to the original schedule on May 15.
American said its daily flight from Charlotte to Honolulu will now stop in Dallas, where passengers will change planes before flying into Honolulu while its daily flight from Charlotte to London will stop in Boston for additional fuel.
