Airlines across the country are canceling thousands of flights amid summer travel

While many people in the United States are preparing for summer travel, thousands are canceled. According to CBS News, airlines canceled “numerous” flights on Friday, just as they did on Thursday due to bad weather.

“Airlines canceled more than 1,000 flights on Friday after canceling more than 1,700 on Thursday,” the website said. The airports with the most cancellations include Charlotte, La Guardia, Newark and Reagan, an airport outside Washington, DC.

According to CBS, American Airlines had the highest number of cancellations with 261. Delta “cleared” 203 trips and United “canceled 92 trips”.

Curtis Blessing, spokesman for American Airlines he says the cancellations were mainly related to time:

Most of them are related to time.

Blessing also said Miami weather was also contributing to Friday’s cancellation.

CBS News travel editor Peter Greenberg said:

The real problem was not just the canceled flights. The real problem was connecting flights. Because if the first flight was slow, people had real problems. They missed their connecting flights. There were no other options. They were blocked.

Pete Butigig, the transport minister, held a virtual press conference with the executive directors of each airline to ensure that this does not happen on July 4th. They also discussed a better way to communicate with passengers who have canceled flights.

More than 2,500 US airline flights were recently canceled over Remembrance Day weekend, and again, bad weather was to blame in addition to a shortage of pilots.

A total of more than 2.2 million registered with the TSA in June, a 13% drop from the previous year.
