Southwest Airlines canceled more than 350 flights nationwide Monday, and delayed another 600. That's after an additional 1,000 flights were canceled over the weekend.

  • At Philadelphia's airport, four flights were canceled, and four were delayed Monday. On Sunday, eight were canceled.

The intrigue: The cancelations began after the airline's pilots asked a court to block the company's new vaccine mandate.

What they're saying: The Southwest Pilot Association has denied any kind of protest.
