Southwest canceled more than 2,000 flights this weekend amid air traffic control issues and weather, and the airline has not given an update as to whether the cancellations may continue.
Southwest has canceled 1,018 flights and had 597 flights delayed on Sunday alone!
How is this even legal!?
Are weather conditions really the reason they are canceling flights?
Is it the real reason because the company is not making enough.
Or is it because of the lack of staff that isn’t taking the vaccine mandate that is held in place and are losing their jobs? Let us get this clear, once this mandate gets implemented in all the states, these kinds of companies will fail to provide the services needed. This is just one way to cripple the mental state of people. If you are flying out in Southwest for the holidays be sure to track that you arent getting bumped off to the next flight or get canceled. That is about 30% of their schedule. But yet other airlines were still in business, every other airline was still ready to fly in and out of the airport.
Southwest’s response is “ATC issues and disruptive weather have resulted in a high volume of cancellations throughout the weekend while we work to recover our operation,” Southwest said in a statement on Twitter Saturday. “We appreciate your patience as we accommodate affected customers, and customer service wait times are longer than usual.”
This is BS how can these kinds of companies will not stand up for their own employees nor paying customers. This is the end result of allowing government mandates on employees whether they have the choice or not. Let us see how bad this is going to get during the holidays.
