WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- American Airlines' mechanics will fix floor mounts in 48 of its 757 airplanes to prevent seats from coming loose.

There have been three recent incidents where the seats came loose while in flight.

Engineers will upgrade the mechanism that locks the seats to the floor.

The carrier has had to cancel more than 90 flights this week to make the repairs.
