Airline travelers are not only facing sticker shock this Memorial Day weekend, the kickoff to the summer travel season. They’re also dealing with a pileup of flight cancellations.

More than 1,200 flights were canceled as of 2 p.m EST Saturday, according to flight tracking website FlightAware. That followed more than 2,300 cancellations on Friday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Delta Air Lines suffered the most among U.S. airlines, with more than 240 flights, or 9% of its operations, eliminated on Saturday. Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, where Delta is based and has its largest hub, was heavily affected by the travel delays. On Saturday, 5% of the flights there were cancelled, while 7% were delayed.


Airlines and tourists destinations are expecting huge crowds this summer, especially since the pandemic measures have been lifted.

However, those booking their summer vacations will be in for quite a bit of “sticker shock”.

Hopper, a travel data firm, reported that domestic airline fares are 24% higher than this time in 2019 and 45% higher than a year ago.

Airlines are experiencing employee shortages, having thousands less than in 2019, which is contributing to the massive cancellations.

  1. Maybe it’s time for the airlines to hire back the pilots and the other employees they fired because they didn’t get the shot. They also need to get out of their woke mode and start pushing for legislation that opens up all of the pipelines. Put all customers 1st

  2. I can promise that all the planes in the gay cities are flying . The skies over Cleveland are empty but Boston and New York don’t even notice

  3. Maybe the Airlines should hire back some of those unvaxed Pilots that they fired or let go due to strict policy on vaccinations!

    • Agreed. Then there is also the issue of those that got the jab, then ended up with heart conditions and can no longer fly.

  4. I suppose all those people who got fired for not accepting the ‘vaccine’ can’t be rehired, because that would work against the narrative and show the airlines firing them was unnecessary.

  5. Joke is once again they initially lied say it was weather conditions so they didn’t have to reimburse passengers.
