(Patriot Insider) – Americans everywhere are fighting the tyrannical COVID-19 vaccine mandates and one of the most notable fights is going on at US airlines. First it was Southwest, who canceled upwards of 2,000 flights in one weekend, and now it’s American Airlines.
Over Halloween weekend, American Airlines canceled over 1,500 flights, citing “high winds” as the reason. Though, they were a bit more honest about the entire situation than Southwest and reported that staffing shortages were also a factor in the flight cancellations.
They must have watched how well it worked out for Southwest to try and fool the American people and decided on a different, more upfront approach so as not to get dragged on social media.
The weekend troubles started on Friday with the airline canceling 740 flights on Friday, followed by 543 on Saturday and a strong finish with 634 canceled flights on Sunday.
“With additional weather throughout the system, our staffing begins to run tight as crew members end up out of their regular flight sequences,” the airline told CNN, in reference to about 2,000 flight attendants set to return from leave on Monday.
In reality, we all know the airline is experiencing staffing issues because of resistance to the COVID-19 vaccine mandates that were issued on Oct. 2.
It’s clear that American Airlines employees are not happy with the mandates and plan to fight against them as evidenced by an employee-backed protest, led by the US Freedom Flyers, that is scheduled to take place on November 11, outside of the airline’s Dallas, Texas, headquarters.
It just so happens to be Veterans Day and we’re not sure if that was intentional or not but it is certainly fitting considering these airline workers aren’t just fighting for their own freedom but for freedom from tyrannical mandates for the rest of us.
This is a war in its own sense and those committed to fighting it are modern day heroes despite not being a member of the military.
“We call the shots, not them. Veterans, motorcycle clubs, first responders, EVERYONE welcome! We believe in medical freedom. Coercion ≠ Consent,” the US Freedom Flyers stated.

This weekend of cancellations for American Airlines comes just days after hundreds of Southwest Airlines employees held a protest at the company’s headquarters in Dallas against the vaccine mandates.
Southwest attempted to blame their nearly 2,000 flight cancellations on bad weather and flight control issues but anyone with a smartphone and access to the forecast knew that was a big lie.

ATC issues and disruptive weather have resulted in a high volume of cancellations throughout the weekend while we work to recover our operation. We appreciate your patience as we accommodate affected Customers, and Customer Service wait times are longer than usual. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/o1scQJ5lLb

This is all untrue info. This is not due to weather… All of our flights have been cancelled because employees are walking out due to the vaccine mandate. We were notified at midnight our second flight was cancelled and they won’t allow me to cancel the first leg. On hold 3.5 hrs

Bull. Your own employees working at the gate in the airport told everyone standing there that cancellation was due to employee protest of the vaccine mandate.

A gate agent told me that it was because of workers and the weather story was not true. I’m stuck in Cabo (worse places to be stuck, I admit) and NEED to get home. A couple in my group were told they can’t get home for 3 days after waiting at the airport for 6 hours!!!!

ONLY canceled flights are @SouthwestAir. This is NOT related to ATC OR WEATHER. pic.twitter.com/BuKek4Wo7A

The @SouthwestAir mass cancellation/delay problem may be a mass sickout protesting the company forcing vahqseens on them.
See below. They blamed weather, but other carriers were unaffected? ????

Southwest Airlines canceled hundreds more flights Monday following a weekend of major service disruptions. Have you, or anyone you know, been affected by Southwest Airlines' flight cancellations? https://t.co/1GjCbTI67W

American Airlines CEO Doug Parker said last week that most employees have received the jabs with a small minority refusing but that they will “almost certainly” submit a religious or medical exemption by the Nov. 24 deadline. He also added, “and those who aren’t we’ll continue to work with.”

Airline workers are holding the line and that benefits all of us. When the vaccine mandates come knocking on your door, what will you do? This is about so much more than a shot. This is about freedom.
