More than 1,800 flights into and out of Florida were either postponed or canceled over the weekend after air traffic controllers in Jacksonville reportedly conducted a "mass sickout" to protest the federal Covid vaccine mandate.
Big Media propagandists lined up behind an alternative explanation suggesting the outages were due to bad weather or active military training in the airspace.
Journalist Leland Vittert tweeted: "Airline sources: mass “sickout” @FAANews center in Jacksonville — caused ripple effect and 1000+ flight cancellations mostly effecting @SouthwestAir — report “sickout” protesting #VaccineMandate"
According to Flight Aware, Saturday saw some 800 cancellations. Sunday morning saw more than 1,000 flights canceled.
