Have you ever heard of weather and ATC issues only affecting One Airline? Southwest i

Anyone following this? Major ****ups in Southwest's operations since Friday. 1000s of cancellations.

They blamed weather and ATC.

But why would that only affect Southwest!?!?!?!?!? American had one tenth of the cancellations that SW had over the weekend.

Rumor is vax mandate sickout/walkout by ATC controllers and SWA pilots. SWA pilot union denies it because it would be an illegal strike(no warning).

Pilots must be particularly concerned with these vaccines and their heightened risk of blood clots...considering that flying also increases your risk of getting a blood clot...so I'm not surprised.

I think you’re right, pilots and flight attendants makes more sense than ATC’s which I said in another thread.

Anything reported by the FAA or federal govt. can't be taken seriously any longer and since common sense suggest mandates, its definitely the only way to go.

If they say it is weather related, THEY DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR HOTEL ROOM AND MEAL.

I guess that says all you need know about SW.

When an airline and the mainstream media claims flight cancellations are weather related:

Shouldn't there be, I don't know... weather that shows up on an actual weather report?

Some might say things are a mess, I read airlines have been getting huge fines imposed on them for passengers being forced to sit on planes for hours due to reasons not explained in the article. I believe several company's were involved, prior to reading that it was like a month before I was reading some airline company's had company wide computer outages forcing the grounding of whole fleets for days. So when I see weather I think major computer glitches and the costs might get be less under weather category.

Biden claimed in his speech in Chicago that United airlines was 99% vaccinated. I don't believe this for a minute. There cannot be such a difference between the #3 and #4 airline, (Southwest).
The UAL CEO was at the speech and nodded to these numbers. I think there are more crooked liars in corporate power than folks realize. I don't trust but a few of these numbers the're cramming down our throats. My sense is if they report 75-80% of Americans are vaccinated, they'll shame the remaining 20% to capitulate.My thoughts are the numbers and sources (too often sources aren't even mentioned) are fabricated to fit the narrative.
With their track record on honesty in recent times, how can anyone trust what they tell us anymore?

Good point. Sometimes even I forget how brutally corrupt this world is, and blindly take faith in numbers spit out to me by the students of Goebbels.

A friend had planned a trip w his wife to Florida for 5 days. Anniversary celebration. The night before, Southwest calls and tells them flights on both ends of their trip have been canceled.

This was 3 days ago.

There’s a one in a thousand chance of getting a blood clot in the general population. There were seven blood clots from seven million J & J vaccines.

If I were a flight attendant or a pilot (DO NOT FLY ON THAT PLANE) I would be more likely to refuse to fly on a plane where no one was vaccinated than one where vaccines were mandated.

Southwest laid off a lot of people during the pandemic and have had trouble getting all of them back.

Why? The "vaccine" confers near 100% protection against the unvaccinated according to you. Why do you care?
