What a shocker!
Airlines giant American Airlines was forced to cancel over a whooping 300 flights this past weekend because they did not have enough crew members to staff their planes!
According to Fox Business, American Airlines released the following statement explaining the reason for the flight cancelations, “The first few weeks of June have brought unprecedented weather to our largest hubs, heavily impacting our operation and causing delays, canceled flights and disruptions to crew member schedules and our customers’ plans.”
“That, combined with the labor shortages some of our vendors are contending with and the incredibly quick ramp up of customer demand, has led us to build in additional resilience and certainty to our operation by adjusting a fraction of our scheduled flying through mid-July,” the statement continued.
“We made targeted changes with the goal of impacting the fewest number of customers by adjusting flights in markets where we have multiple options for re-accommodation,” the statement finished.
