What can i expect as a passenger? More cancelations? Being stranded in small stations? If so, how long have the airlines had to prepare? (So that I can gauge my anger level properly.) What has already been done to schedules and staffing to proactively prepare? Material differences by airline?

In theory, a customer could hit 1K while the airline loses quite a bit of money, assuming PQMs were earned on United. Alternatively, an occa...
