Southwest Airlines cancels 1,000 more flights as disruptions mount


Southwest Airlines had to cancel over one thousand flights over the weekend.

  • The airline company cited issues regarding weather and traffic control as reasons for the cancellations.
  • "We experienced significant impact in the Florida airports yesterday (Friday) evening after an FAA-imposed air traffic management program was implemented due to weather and resulted in a large number of cancellations," a statement from Southwest read.
  • American Airlines and Spirit also experienced flight cancellations, though not nearly as many as Southwest. 
  • Have you ever dealt with flight cancellations? Do you have backup plans in case a flight gets cancelled?
