Re: Frontier Has Cancelled 97 Flights So Far Today??

Seems rediculous that a time when they have thousands of employees sitting at home getting paid they had to cancel all these flights due to staffing(if that's the reason). Clearly they had the staff they just didn't schedule them correctly. Seems like no one's fault but their own
