The Latest Airline Lie About Weather IX

This is yet another example of the Airline Lie pertaining to weather as we endure yet another day with hundreds of airline flights cancelled. 

The 5:45p CDT weather map is a late June dream for the airlines. 
I surmise this is occurring because the airlines have reached the end of the month and are out of employees that have sufficient "hours of service" left. Whether it is pilots, flight attendants or dispatchers, the Federal Aviation Administration has strict limits on sleep and on-duty hours that cannot be exceeded. Given how short-handed they are, I suspect this is the true reason. 

It is appalling how little actual reporting news agencies do these days. Whatever the reason for all of the cancellations, it isn't bad weather.
