Southwest Airlines Cancels Thousands of Flights

Over the weekend Southwest Airlines canceled over 1800 flights, and their troubles seemed to continue Monday when another 363 flights were canceled. The weekend flight cancellations represented nearly 30% of the airline’s weekend flights, and Monday’s cancellations were about 10%. By comparison, the other 3 major airlines (American, United, and Delta) had cancelled only 92 flights in the same time period.

Southwest had blamed the trouble on weather and unexplained issues at Air Traffic Control. If that were true, it seems odd that the weather and Air Traffic Control issues affected Southwest Airlines exclusively. A much more likely cause is that the employees of the airline are fighting back against the vaccine mandate. The company mandate, which was released on October 4th, threatens any employee not vaccinated by December 8, 2021, with termination.

In response to the mandate, the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association has filed a lawsuit in a federal court in Dallas. The union did distance itself from any theories about striking pilots. “We can say with confidence that our pilots are not participating in any official or unofficial job actions.”

So, while there is no definitive evidence that Southwest’s troubles were driven by employees staying home, there really is no reasonable alternate explanation. The nation owes these Southwest employees a huge debt of gratitude. Many people were stuck at airports over the weekend, which is a temporary and admittedly irritating situation. However, the loss of freedom and bodily autonomy is much more permanent and tragic. The trains and planes likely run on time in communist China, but everyone there is a slave to the all-powerful state. In order to remain free, America needs heroes to answer the call to action. Southwest Airlines employees are doing just that.

Thanks to Biden’s horrible energy policies, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) warned that heating costs could skyrocket by more than 50%. “We expect that households across the United States will spend more on energy this winter compared with the past several winters because of these higher energy prices and because we assume a slightly colder winter than last year in much of the United States,” read a report from the EIA. The EIA failed to admit that those “past several winters” where energy prices were lower fall under Donald Trump’s time in office. And the news gets worse. Not only will energy to heat your homes be more expensive, but energy costs across the board will continue to soar, according to the EIA. The current energy crisis is tied back to Biden undercutting America’s energy independence right after taking office Biden Admin Alerts Americans: You’re Going to Be Paying 54% More If You Want Heat This Winter.

  2. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words will not pass.
    God will give us a new heaven and a new earth. Read the
    bible it is in there.

    1. Amen. Don’t just ‘Read’ the bible, ‘Study’ the bible. Draw near to the Lord, and He will draw near to you.

  3. If you want you planes to come down and crash go ahead and tell them to get vaxxed. That is exactly what you are saying. I would not and will not fly with an Air Line that has vaxxed pilots, stewards and ground crew. There are a lot of plane crashes do to the pilots being vaxxed.

  4. I agree with the pilots 100% – it is up to the individual. I have my three. It is a question of age, fear of the strange virus, etc. However, I would have said NO, if a government order had been in place at the time. Bill.

  5. Odd how “weather” and “air traffic control” problems only affected one airlike!!!!!!!!!! Sounds like a HUGE lie to me!!!!!!!!!!
