Southwest Airlines is carefully tracking a wintry storm system moving across the southcentral states and is monitoring changing conditions to modify our operational plan as necessary. Based on the latest forecast, we anticipate the greatest operational impact for Dallas Love Field, Little Rock, and Memphis.
Due to anticipated operational conditions, Southwest Airlines has proactively cancelled nearly 80 flights systemwide on Friday, Dec 6 due to weather; 42 of those flights are scheduled departures out of Dallas Love Field.
For context, Southwest Airlines had 3200 flights scheduled to operate systemwide today; AirTran Airways had 410 flights scheduled to operate systemwide today.
Our main focus is on the Safety of our Customers and Employees, while making sure our flights operate safely to their destinations.
Operational planners for both Southwest and AirTran are coordinating with our Meteorologists to track the progress of the storm and evolve our Customer accommodation policies, which are already being updated at this link on southwest.com.
City-specific cancelation numbers can be calculated by visiting the websites of the individual airports. We have City Fact Sheets that provide general information about our destinations served, number of daily flights, facilities, and employment numbers.
