Southwest flights are back on schedule after days of chaos
The latest: As of 8:30 am ET Friday morning, Southwest had 41 cancellations, which is about 1% of its flight schedule, per Flight Aware data. The airline also had 101 delays.
- Southwest had topped FlightAware's charts with thousands of canceled flights earlier this week, when the airline flew about one-third of its schedule.
- It ranked eighth on the list Friday morning.
- Operational challenges undermined the airline's ability to resume service, Axios reported.
Yes, but: Southwest said on Thursday it was "eager to return to a state of normalcy" on Friday, hoping for "minimal disruptions" over the New Year's Eve weekend.
- Southwest said that employees were working "around-the-clock" to help customers get back on schedule.
What we're watching: Southwest Airlines CEO Bob Jordan apologized publicly earlier this week for the failures. He said the airline will help customers who suffered as a result.
