Why Is United Canceling Flights?

United has canceled more than 1,100 flights since December 23rd, and there’s a bit of a dispute as to why.  The airline says that weather has been the primary cause of the wave of cancellations (which would make sense given the beating the midwest has taken, but AA has canceled far fewer at their Chicago hub), but the pilots union says that the airline simply doesn’t have enough pilots to fly.

If you’re flying out of O’Hare in the next couple of weeks, and you haven’t bought your ticket, it’s worth taking this info into consideration (though, let’s be honest, it’s still a tiny percentage of their total flights).
