According to the FlightAware tracking service dashboard, at least 7,224 flights were delayed or canceled on Sunday and 4,075 flights were delayed or canceled on Saturday. This was after 10,410 was canceled or delayed on Friday, USA Today reported quoting FlightAware. The total for the three days is 21,709, which includes 3,167 cancellations and 18,542 delays. By the end of Monday it had dropped to 3,824, showing that the dashboard contained 3,445 delays and 379 cancellations. Experts told CNN that a federal holiday was observed on Monday and Father’s Day was observed on Sunday. In the first year of the pandemic, major American airlines reduced their workforce to kill staff using early retirement packages and acquisitions. However, in the aftermath of the global pandemic, airlines struggled to increase their workforce to pre-pandemic levels. Unfortunately, staffing and scheduling issues continue to plague airlines, and bad weather also makes flight scheduling more difficult.

Washington (Spirit)-After a busy weekend with more than 21,000 flights delayed or canceled, US air travel has returned to normal.

According to the FlightAware tracking service dashboard, at least 7,224 flights were delayed or canceled on Sunday and 4,075 flights were delayed or canceled on Saturday. This was after 10,410 was canceled or delayed on Friday, USA Today reported quoting FlightAware. The total for the three days is 21,709, which includes 3,167 cancellations and 18,542 delays.

The numbers fell to 3,824 by the end of Monday, showing that the dashboard included 3,445 delays and 379 cancellations.

Experts told CNN that much of the traffic was due to the new federal holidays Juneteenth and Father’s Day, which were observed on Monday.

Officials said the Department of Transportation Screened 2.4 million tourists at US airports on Friday, up 17 percent from Friday before Father’s Day last year.

When demand for flights fell during the first year of the pandemic, major American Airlines reduced its workforce to culling staff using early retirement packages and buyouts. However, in the aftermath of the global pandemic, airlines struggled to increase their workforce to pre-pandemic levels.

Unfortunately, staffing and scheduling issues continue to plague airlines, and bad weather also makes flight scheduling difficult.
