The Federal Aviation Administration has levied a $24.2 million fine on American Airlines, prompting executives from the carrier to announce they will fight the charge. The fine stemmed from an issue with wiring harnesses. "These events happened more than two years ago, and we believe this action is unwarranted," American said in a statement. "We plan to follow the FAA's process and will challenge any proposed civil penalty. We are confident we have a strong case and the facts will bear this out."
