Flight Cancellations Growing
As many as 2,000 flights have been canceled as airline workers stage a walkoff to protest the vaccine mandates. Air traffic control workers seem to be coordinating the walkoffs., but there were also online rumors of pilots joining the protests. Many different airlines have been effected. More from Vincent James at The Red Elephants.
Here, Tim Pool provides more details. He says Southwest Airlines alone canceled 2,000 flights over the weekend, while other airlines, including Spirit, also saw disruptions. The employees joining the walkoffs are not only tired of the vaccine mandates, they are tired because of the mandates. The reason: Some employees are now gone, so working hours for everyone left have skyrocketed. So workers feel they need a break.
