Aviation tracking website FlightAware says that’s 40% of Spirit’s schedule.

Spirit says the issues stem from weather and operational challenges.

According to a source, crew schedules were thrown off after a series of storms over the past week.

It’s unclear if operations are back to normal.

But Spirit’s social media accounts suggest some travelers are still waiting to be rescheduled from weekend cancellations.
