Travel troubles: Aviation problems continue with 2,300 US flights canceled amid outbreak

DALLAS – For those traveling by plane, the new year begins where the old year went – with a lot of disappointments.

According to tracking service FlightAware, by mid-morning Saturday on the East Coast, more than 2,300 US flights had been cancelled.

It was the highest single-day charge since airlines began blaming staff shortages for a spike in COVID-19 infections among cabin crew just before Christmas.

However, Saturday’s disruption is not solely due to the virus.

Inclement weather has made Chicago the worst place in the country for travelers, with 800 flights made at O’Hare Airport and more than 250 at Midway Airport.

Southwest has canceled more than 450 flights, or 13% of its schedule.

SkyWest, which operates flights such as American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express, has flown more than 400 flights, or 21% of its schedule.

American, Delta, United and JetBlue have all operated more than 100 flights each.
