Flights canceled, Boston delays continue after disappointing weekend of air travel

Flight cancellations and delays continued Monday at Boston’s Logan International Airport after travelers were stuck in terminals for hours over the weekend. As of 11 p.m. Monday, FlightAware reported 55 flight cancellations and 206 delays. The vast majority of flight cancellations to and from Logan Airport included JetBlue, which has the largest presence at the airport. Spirit canceled nearly 75 percent of its flights to Boston on Monday. A JetBlue spokesperson said the number of flight delays and cancellations is not specific to JetBlue, and that severe weather in the Southeast and multiple air traffic control delay programs have made significant impacts on the industry over the past several days. Tom Kenton, of Kinton Aviation Consulting, explained that planes stuck on the ground in Florida and their crews stuck on the ground in Florida had their timeouts. They could fly legally, so they didn’t have replacement crews there, and they ran back. JetBlue said Monday that it has “made good progress in ramping up operations and repositioning crew members and aircraft that were forced to leave.” “Airlines are not in a position to recover these days as they were before because of hiring,” Kenton said. “It’s a lot more than the weather. The main culprit – there are a lot of things, but the main culprit – is the lack of pilots, as well as the lack of flight attendants and the lack of mechanics. The airline industry is facing the same thing that many other industries are experiencing,” Kenton said. “According to the Transportation Workers Federation of America, Ed Backclure, JetBlue’s head of customer service and programs, issued a statement on March 28 that noted that operational problems at JetBlue are caused by flight attendant refusals. Acceptance of assignments The union, in a press release, said Bachlor’s statement could not be further from the truth. “It is time for JetBlue to stop playing the blame game with their flight attendants,” said Gary Peterson, TWU International Vice President and Director of Aviation, at Guild statement.” Our hosts attended and kept this airline flying during the pandemic. Now is the time for management to show them.” Flight attendants are not the cause of these problems. They are the reason customers are returning to JetBlue, John Samuelsen, president of TWU International, said in a union statement. “TWU is ready to meet on these issues immediately. It’s time for JetBlue to take responsibility for poor management decisions and come to a table to negotiate real solutions that will address the real problems.”
