The Real Reason Southwest Cancelled 1,800 Flights Is Beyond Sinister!

Things are definitely heating up across the country but you would not know any of it if you listened to the mainstream news.

In the early evening hours last night, there were rumors swirling that Jacksonville air traffic controllers walked off the job causing chaos, and of course, the media was silent. However, that wasn’t the only strike that occurred over the weekend.

In fact, it has been confirmed that thousands of Southwest flights were canceled this weekend and stranded customers across the country. The mainstream media has been reporting that it was severe weather issues, air traffic control issues, and staffing shortages, but that has been determined to be a lie.

Our question for Southwest Airlines is what’s the reason for the staffing shortages?

What made staffing shortages severe enough to cancel 1,800 flights in one weekend?

From CNBC:

Southwest Airlines canceled more than 1,800 flights this weekend, disrupting the travel plans of thousands of customers and stranding flight crews, blaming the meltdown on a combination of bad weather, air traffic control and its own shortage of available staff.

“I know this is incredibly difficult for all of you, and our Customers are not happy,” Alan Kasher executive vice president of daily flight operations told staff in a note on Sunday, which was seen by CNBC.

The airline blamed initial problems on bad weather and an “FAA-imposed air traffic management program.”

“Although we were staffed for the weekend, we could not anticipate the significant disruption that was created from unexpected ATC issues and bad weather across our Florida stations,” said Kasher.

Other airlines canceled relatively few flights. Southwest did not comment on the disparity.

The Federal Aviation Administration said there were a “few hours” of flight delays on Friday afternoon because of severe weather and staffing issues at Jacksonville Air Route Traffic Control Center, which controls airspace in five parts of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.

And as mentioned before there was also the Jacksonville Air Route Traffic Control Center disturbance.
