Although the exact reasons for the cancellations and delays are unknown, Miami International Airport attributed the problems to “bad” weather over the past weekend.
In the case of Southwest, the airline is barely recovering from a technical problem that forced it to cancel hundreds of flights last Saturday, a situation exacerbated by weather conditions at multiple airports.
