Emergency! The Southwest Airlines Disaster


Southwest Airlines has been having a bad week. First Goldman Sachs downgraded their shares because they don’t see near-term profit in the Southwest Hawaii route that we have all been waiting for.

Now the volume of maintenance issues is causing flight cancellations for passengers:

Southwest has now extended its “operational emergency” to its hub in Dallas and more than 180 Southwest flights were cancelled on Tuesday which equates to around 4% of its operation. Truly an emergency for the airline as so many of their Boeing 737’s have been taken out of circulation for maintenance at once.

If you are planning to fly on Southwest over the weekend it would be wise to check the news and to keep an eye on departures in case your flight has been cancelled too.
