Southwest Airlines has criticized air traffic control and delayed flight delays and delays until the fourth day, with the airline saying the crash showed how much more work was difficult.
Dallas flight banned 363 flights Monday, 10% of bookings in the US, and another 21% delay. The disruption is in stark contrast to other major US operations. American Airlines only suspended 1% of its flights on Monday with an 8% delay, and United and Delta flights performed well.
The crisis improved again over the weekend, with the southwest banning or delaying 59% of flights on Saturday and 62% on Sundays. In the United States, by comparison, an estimated 23% of U.S. airlines crashed.

There were rumors on the internet over the weekend that the cancellation and delays in the southwest stemmed from an illegal “illness” – with workers citing multiple illnesses as a way to disrupt business – which the airline and contract said were not false.
Casey Murray, President of the Southwest Airlines Pilot Association, told members of the alliance that what had been “minor evacuation incidents had damaged Southwest Airlines because our work had become lighter and less successful under a little pressure”.
Few workers in the southwest are frustrated with Covid-19 vaccine support. Last week the agreement asked the federal court to overturn the order, saying it was not against them but that the airline should discuss the situation.
The agreement “did not allow, and does not approve of, any work,” Murray said.
Shares in the southwest were down 3.2% at $ 52.19 on sale on Monday afternoon.
