More than 7,300 flights were canceled or delayed in the U.S. on Sunday due to spikes of COVID-19 cases as many people sought to travel home from their Christmas holiday destinations, USA Today reports.

Approximately 5,900 flights were delayed as the omicron variant has led to a surge in coronavirus cases nationwide. About 1,400 flights were canceled altogether, according to the news outlet, which gathered its data from the flight-tracking website FlightAware.

The airlines have made it clear to their employees that are cattle subject to medical experimentation at the whim of the airlines.

The employees are now making it clear that revenge is a dish best served cold.

American moved their mandates back a month and paid triple wages and had no cancellations.

wondering if the Mayor now serving as Transportation Secretary has any fix for this. Pretty tall grass for someone focused on his maternity leave.

Lack of pilots for smaller airplanes, like 737, not a lack of other staff.

Quit falling for the scam, folks.

There is no labor shortage. There IS a shortage of companies that are willing to pay the wages that the market demands, as well as provide the working conditions that the labor market demands.

Supply and demand for thee, but not for me.

The main symptoms of the omicron variant are being reported as:

- Lack of critical thinking skills.
- Irrational panic
- Authoritarian measures
- Obsessive testing.
- Media propaganda.

Don’t forget the number one cause of illness:

Hypochondria!

If your symptoms appear on the front of a bottle of Nyquil, it’s NOT a pandemic.

I stand corrected. I forgot that one.

I quit flying anywhere, in July 1996, after TWA 800 was shot down and covered-up by the Klintoons and FBI and other gov’t agencies.

How do they know its surging?

https://www.cdc.gov/csels/dls/locs/2021/12-03-2021-lab-alert-CDC_Update_SARS-CoV-2_Omicron_Variant.html

What Laboratories Should Know:

There are no authorized, cleared, or approved diagnostic tests to specifically detect SARS-CoV-2 variants (Omicron or other variants). Currently, COVID-19 tests are designed and authorized to check broadly for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, not for specific variants.

The Omicron variant has a deletion in the spike (S) gene (Δ69-70). Some molecular tests with multiple genetic targets include a target covering the portion of the S gene where the deletion occurs. The presence of this mutation can result in an S-gene target failure (SGTF, also referred to as an S-gene drop out). The S-gene target will fail (return as negative) while other targets are expected to remain positive in the presence of this virus. SGTF can signal the need for sequencing to characterize the variant in a specimen. SGTF has been observed in other variants and thus is not specific to the Omicron variant”
