Sunday Update — Southwest cancels 1,000 flights.

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Southwest Airlines canceled close to 2,000 flights over the weekend, blaming the woes on air traffic control issues and weather.  The airline canceled more than 1,000 flights or 29% of its Sunday schedule, as of 7 p.m. ET, according to flight tracker FlightAware.  That was the highest rate by far of the major U.S. airlines.  Next in line was Allegiant, which canceled 6% of its flights. American Airlines canceled 5% of its flights, while Spirit canceled 4% on Sunday, according to the flight tracker.

 

On Saturday, Southwest Airlines canceled more than 800 flights.

 

Harteveldt says the most troubling reason is the likelihood that some pilots who oppose Southwest’s decision to mandate COVID vaccinations are participating in a “work slowdown.”

UPDATE

 

Hundreds of flights today and yesterday have been postponed or canceled into and out of Florida. Legacy media is claiming the outages are due to bad weather, but word has leaked of a mass sickout at the FAA air traffic control center in Jacksonville in protest of federal Vaccine mandates.

 

 

 

Southwest Airlines blamed the mass cancellations on “ATC issues and disruptive weather”

 

 

Travelers noted that the weather was just fine…

 

 

Walkout over Vaccine mandates…

Good to see Delta and SWA backed down. Now the Fed’s need to back down, before we lose 100’s of ATCers…. And 1,000’s of officers and medical professionals.
I think (pray) the Fed’s will blink before Nov 22 if we stand strong.

The same applies to all of us which is…

“If you’ve ever wondered whether you would have complied during 1930s Germany, now you know.” — Banner of a Covid-19 protester

The saying goes “SEEK the truth and you shall find it” –and NOT that you find the truth by passively ACCEPTING what authorities tell you is the “truth” like herd animals unthinkingly obey their shepherds’ orders. Yet almost nobody ACTIVELY SEEKS the truth, they only PASSIVELY ACCEPT as “truth” what the authorities tell them and so become UNthinking members of “herd stupidity.”

Do YOU actually SEEK the truth or are you a mindless member of “herd stupidity”?

You can ONLY see the official lies IF you SEEK the truth…. it means you must LOOK “behind the curtain” — behind the official narratives.

If you don’t stand up for the unvaxxed now, you wouldn’t have stood up for the Jews then.” — Paul Rosenberg

Same thing with the nurses, the official line from the hospitals is there’s a shortage of nurses – as though they weren’t firing nurses or pressuring them until they quit.

Fox news radio dutifully reports these things as mere shortages. Nobody is fooled.

So now, thanks to evil / senile “president” Joe Biden, more people are dying due to his mandates. Incredibly, even after all of Biden’s serial mega-disasters, he STILL has a 38% approval poll numbers from Democrats.

The employers know they’ve pulled the pin on a giant hand grenade. Workers who are adamantly against these mandates have no other choice than to walk off the gig in protest. Nothing else has worked, so let’s see what effect a crippled airline industry, shipping, trucking, teaching, healthcare, etc has on these horrendously stupid mandates.

Time to stop working for the elites when it is not worth it anymore! It is called Going Galt! Congratulations it has been a long time coming. Shut the whole country down until the rich start to squeal. There plan is to do that to you when it is cold in the winter. The super-rich including the big corporations want all you have, Blackrock, State Street, Vanguard, Berkshire Hathaway and a few others own almost everything but they cannot feed themselves if we dont do that for them. They want half of us dead to start with. They dont need that many servants! And they want to own everything that there is and we will own nothing. They think we will work for them for food. Well just grow your own food and let them starve ot steal the old way.

Or you could tell them to stop trying to tax you to death and take food off your table. Tell them to stop the drug company fraud and their lying puppet Fraudchi! Tell them to shove their kill shot experiment. Tell China to rot in hell and take Klause, Gates and Soros and the Drug Companys with them. They can throw in the Rockefellars and the Rothchilds while they are going.

Someone correct me if I’m wrong but it seems that the air traffic controllers simply changed the timeline. If they were going to be fired/suspended for not taking the jab anyway, they just showed what the reality is when you don’t let the company control the timing. The same applies to airlines and all companies, when the threat is made, don’t wait to have your replacement installed. Show them real time consequences.

God Bless and protect anyone taking a stand on forced ANYTHING mandated by this illegitimate government. In this case its important to note that its the pilots who have taken the stand, not Southwest Airlines. In this case, the airline is the acquiescing voluntarily to an executive order that has not yet been signed. This is a voluntary action by the company to comply with this illegitimate government tyranny. That we are even discussing peoples private medical status means we are already in deep trouble. Gary Kelly should be remembered as the driving force behind this regardless of the outcome. He should be hounded and labeled a traitor forever. Too many posts on here saying people stand with Southwest. What you should be saying is you stand with Southwest pilots and air traffic controllers who are fighting Southwest.

Never forget who is doing this to you and your fellow Americans. In this instance I’m looking squarely at you Gary Kelly. CEOs have sold us out over the years, this is just the latest example. Never forget who these people are and what they have done to this country. And please remember that you are still a patriot if you love your country but hate your illegitimate government. And to you traitors who think this managed decline by our “leaders” will continue and that you will befree from consequences – there will be no quarter given when the American people fight back.

Lawsuits are hit and miss and they’re not working. We must unite and fight back the way our founding fathers did. And for that to work we all have to have skin in the game because that’s when things start affecting people personally. All these flights got canceled affect people personally this is what’s going to rattle the elites. You can’t force us! We will leave! You can hire whoever you want but they won’t be as good or safe or as reliable as we are. You cannot force us to put something in our body that is an experiment and has no liability. We will bring this country to a standstill.

“Biden’s puppeteers are about to learn a lesson in humility.”–tonka
….You’d sure think so, but…no. They’ll simply blame “right-wing extremists” and “science deniers” and “anti-vaccine zealots” for pushing scare stories that have caused pilots or nurses or air traffic controllers to panic. Hell, I’l bet the NY Times and WaPo and CNN have already written that story.
….”Humility”? Not a single member of the regime or the mainstream media even knows the meaning of the word.

And the Bidiots think that they can fix a refusal by skilled workers (Drs, RNs, pilots, etc) to take their jab by calling up National Guard folk.

BRACE FOR IMPACT! Well done, ATC! Americans are finally saying that we’ve had a snootful of your gov’t totalitarian over-reach, and we’re realizing that we are not without resources to fight back! QUO VADIS, airline industry?. Are you going to replace the ATC with Afghan social workers?

Hey, when the Dems’ “Green New Deal” rules kick in, commercial airlines will be banned, so we’ll only need about 3 percent of the current number of air traffic controllers, since they’ll only be handling congressional and military flights. So it won’t matter if lots of controllers refuse to take the jab!

You can find covid deaths by month (from CDC) at https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7014e1.htm
… Then MSN broke the deaths down by month at https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/covid-19-this-is-how-many-americans-have-died-each-month/ar-AAMmiPy
Now, as of latest CDC #’s, total U.S. covid deaths thru last week were 713,805. Subtract all 377,883 deaths of 2020 and you get 336,000 or so. But with almost three more months to go this year, running 1,500 per day (~45,000 a month), 2021 will end up with roughly 456,000 deaths–or roughly 78,000 more deaths than 2020.
….Of course there’s an easy fix for this: All the CDC has to do is change the definition of “covid death” from “PCR test at 40 cycles found covid, so this was a covid death” to “If patient has ANY co-morbidity, it’s NOT a covid death. If you’re overweight by 20 pounds, you’re obese, so…NOT a covid death.”
….Of course you think that’s absurd, eh? But the CDC just got through changing the definition of “vaccine” from “prevents you from getting the disease” to “Has *some* benefit to victims.” Wow.
