Southwest Resumes Chicago Flights After De-Icing Fluid Shortage

A departure board shows cancellation flights of Southwest Airlines at Chicago Midway International Airport in Chicago after a winter storm moving across the Great Lakes forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights on February 11, 2018.

A flight from John Wayne Airport was forced to turn around and evacuate due to a report of smoke in the aircraft.

At Midway Airport, average flight delays of more than 15 minutes were reported on Sunday afternoon and a total of 264 flights on all airlines were canceled.

The spokesman said de-icing fluid at Midway has been replenished and all de-icing equipment is functional. In the USA, in the event of a delay, a few airlines may say that they will try to transfer you to another carrier, but the decision is theirs.

Southwest faced similar problems in December, the Tribune reported, when it canceled around 90 flights due to difficulties de-icing its planes. He said it is going to be the last flight he is ever going to take. In Europe, if your flight has been delayed by at least three hours or cancelled then you have the right to compensation under European law.

Flight 2123 to San Jose had just pushed back about 7:30 p.m. when smoke was detected in the cabin of the Boeing 737, according to airport spokeswoman Deanne Thompson. Passengers told the media that getting a hold of the airlines to try to change plans was almost impossible. Some passengers like Cole Miller had to sleep on the floor all night. More than 250 flights were canceled, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.

Perhaps it will when someone from Congress is one of those stranded planes.
