Spirit Airlines passengers due to fly from McCarran Airport, Nevada, on August 2, were told their flights would be canceled due to “operational issues.”
Footage shared on Instagram shows long queues at the airport on Monday morning.
The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA released a statement denying that the Spirit Airlines cancellations were due to an employee strike.
The AFA said, “Spirit Airlines is experiencing operational issues causing flight delays and cancellations due to weather, schedule month changeover, and IT outages. A few news outlets have incorrectly reported that this may be due to a strike. This is not true. There is no flight attendant strike. Crews are not the issue. Management is proactively cancelling flights today to recover the operation and prevent further disruption for passengers.” Credit: stephfarley2020 via Storyful
