Airlines Cancel 10,000+ Flights Saturday-into-Sunday in USA

Airlines canceled and delayed more than 10,000 Saturday and Sunday flights because of storms in Florida and a technology issue at Southwest Airlines, stranding travelers across the country and creating long wait times to reach airline customer service. More than 3,400 flights have been canceled and 8,800 flights delayed this weekend as of 3:15 p.m. ET Sunday, according to flight tracker FlightAware.

Last time I flew was 1987 I was in the Guard.
I don't like flying and really have no reason to fly. I do like to travel but I like seeing things when I travel, the country side scenery ect. I pull a camper, take my time and enjoy the trip.
And if my equipment fails I'm not going to fall 30,000 ft. out of the sky.
Airplanes,,, Hurry up and get there, then hurry up get back. If your lucky enough not to set in the airport for a day or two or more waiting for a flight. I have thought many times I wonder how many of those people sitting in that airport have wished (Boy I sure wished my car was sitting in the parking lot).
-1 # It is time to invest in a gypsy wagon and a couple of draft horses!Haarnaś 2022-04-04 10:51
A few years back, when the Soviet Union opened up its borders and let out her hoi-polloi, Washingtonian magazine had a feature article about a couple of gypsy wagons that appeared out of the blue in Potomac, the posh and exclusive suburb of Washinton, DC.

An investigative reporter was sent to the River Road location outside the Beltway and interviewed the newsmakers. It turned out that the drivers of the wagons were ethnic Russians, who lacking funds to buy airline tickets had bought Gypsy wagons In Russia, when they decided to come the US as tourists.

After they kissed their respective families good-bye, it took them a better portion of one or two years to do so, but they accomplished the feat on the cheap. The two Russians had talked to the reporter with pride of their favorite Russian quip: "The more slowly you go, the farther you will get".

Maybe the American truckers who came to DC recently should have traded their eighteen -wheelers for Gypsy wagons before setting out on the journey. Since the Russian adage is obviously correct, they would have a better chance of making it all the way to Capitol. Be it as it may, the truckers-patriots (unlike their Canadian counterparts) accomplished nothing of significance other that support fast food outlets in Hagerstown about an hour away from the Beltway, where they stayed for a few weeks.

Another interesting Washingtonian magazine article about their failure to penetrate the Beltway or the Wisconsin/Georgia/Connecticut Avenues or the inside the Beltway River Road below!

I was on a full flight from DC to Palm Beach on the runway with the engines revved up and ready to take off when the pilot was instructed to go back to the gate. Then the flight was canceled as the one before it had been and later the one after was. No mention of weather. Friends waiting for me at PBI said the weather was sunny. Two friends leaving Tampa had their flights canceled. Several airlines, several airports affected, all citing weather and “IT” issues. I think it’s possible it was a cyber attack…

First time I flew , it was with my boss.
He was a nervous flyer.
I just thought, "This is much safer than using the motorway" and sat looking out of the window !

Europe and China have us beaten when it comes to mass transportation. Modern trains and terminals, multiple routes that run all hours of the day and night and deposit you right into the middle of the cities. The U.S. is iightyears behind other industrialized nations when it comes to domestic travel. Just think of the fuel saved, time saved, and jobs that would be created if we embarked on a project to connect the entire U.S. with rail, high speed, modern, efficient, electric trains. Maybe we could contract with the Chinese who could show us how it is done. lol

Well maybe it's cause the pilots keep dying from all the vax mandates. Think I read it on your site, Hal. The long list of recent deaths in the aviation industry
# Yep,oldschool 2022-04-04 15:28
I seen that list also. and of course there is no full proof safe way to travel nowadays with all the vaxxed zombies floating around out there.

It is a combination of thunderstorms covering numerous airports with lightning in Florida and capacity restrictions put on the airlines by ATC (Jacksonville and Miami Center). Flights were full as it was a spring break weekend. Fuel prices will probably start to have an effect as summer approaches but most airplane tickets were bought prior to the surge in fuel prices.

I was told years ago, that due to the normal high costs of doing business, along with all the expensive government mandates piled onto the airlines, they operate on profit margins of 5% or less. This percentage was also pre-Covid, so you can imagine how much worse it's gotten since then. This means, it doesn't take much of a cost increase(like expensive fuel) to destroy their bottom line. I'm fairly certain we're seeing that happen now. In the near future, airline travel is going to again become the rare and expensive service it once was back in the early days. Might be a good time to start a cross-county bus service like Greyhound. Soon, a lot of people who won't/can't drive or can't afford hyper-expensive airline tickets will be looking for options.

The Airline business is not one I would touch with a 10ft pole. No worries, when it all crashes we can build it Back Better. . .

The US airline business is hugely profitable.....for everyone except the airline stockholders, bond holders, and creditors.

In the last 20 years, US airlines have filed for:
-Chapter 7 protection .... 12 times
-Chapter 11 protection .... 32 times

Management makes a killing.
The employees make a killing.

The creditors ..... not so much. That IS their business model.
# Taxpayers get screwedLoki 2022-04-03 23:34
The airline industry is subsidized by taxpayers. Employees don't make a killing, they work overtime which takes 50% out of their pay. Such a deal.

Stands to reason that this is only the beginning
of such moves before the airlines enact major
maneuvers to cope with fuel upsets.

I have only flown one time in my life back in the 90s BEFORE 9/11. No way I would fly nowadays especially with TSA running the whole show like a damn prison. I either drive to get someplace or I don’t go, period.
