This has been one bad holiday season and you can blame your government for it. Empty shelves, high inflation, and the scare from the omicron virus that caused over 6,000 airline cancellations since Christmas Eve, including one thousand in the United States on Monday.
If you rearrange the letters of Omicron, it spells moronic.
United Airlines said:
“The nationwide spike in omicron cases has had a direct impact on our flight crews and the people who run our operation. As a result, we’ve unfortunately had to cancel some flights and are notifying impacted customers in advance of them coming to the airport”
Alaska Airlines said:
“We’re working as quickly as possible to get all our affected guests rebooked on other flights, while operating safely. Reservations is experiencing extremely long hold times of up to 11 hours.”
Alaska Airlines canceled 167 flights due to the weather so they have an excuse. But thousands and thousands of passengers have been stranded due to the unreasonable fear of the omicron variant.
The Democrats are pushing the fear because they hope to carry it into the 2022 election where they can implement the same procedures that allowed them to steal the 2020 election. And they don’t care how many people’s lives they ruin to accomplish their goal.
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport had the highest volume of canceled or delayed flights, canceling 125 flights and delaying another 215.
SkyWest, a Utah-based airline, had the highest amount of disruptions for U.S. airlines, with 416 cancellations and 780 delays.
The cancellations also impacted major airlines such as Alaska, American, Delta, and United.
The airlines chalked up the delays and cancellations to call-outs related to the omicron strain of the coronavirus or poor weather conditions.
Monday’s disruptions continue the streak of cancelations and delays that began on Christmas Eve. According to ABC7, “A combined 1,700 flights were canceled on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.” Additionally, 1,517 U.S. flights were canceled on Sunday.
Unfortunately, the cancelations occurred during one of the busiest travel periods for Americans. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screened 2.19 million travelers on December 23 and over 1.53 million on Christmas Day.
