Thousands of angry customers had to reschedule their flights after Southwest canceled over 1,800 flights in two days. The company says the cancelations were due to bad weather, air traffic control issues, and a staff shortage. But due to clear weather, the disparity of other airlines’ canceled flights, and the recent lawsuit by the Southwest pilots over the vaccine mandate, many believe it was a strike by the pilots to protest against the vaccine mandate.
