On the 24th of December, a day before Xmas, United Airlines Holdings Inc. delayed hundreds of flights, and Delta Airlines Inc. is about to delay roughly 90 flights.
The substantial increase in omicron Covid-19 viruses, according to United, may be affecting the accessibility of aircrews and service personnel. Other than the virus, Delta claimed its canceled flights were a result of a variety of reasons, such as possible severe weather.
Delta will operate approximately 3,100 flights on Friday
“While delaying approximately 90 flights on Friday, Delta staff tried every opportunity, including re-routing and replacing planes and employees for regular flights,” the company stated.
“Sadly, several flights might be delayed, and we notified affected clients in anticipation of their arrival.” “We are sorry for the inconvenience and are making progress to reschedule and assign as many customers on vacation as possible,” United says.
One of the toughest moments to fly is during vacations. Following the TSA, the most overloaded days before Christmas flying will be December 22 and 23, as well as the most overloaded days after Christmas for flights will be January 2 and 3.
