The number of flights being culled is relatively small, amounting to about 1% of planned flying in the first half of July, the company said.

This weekend was a rough one as unavailable flight crews were cited as the reason about half of about 303 flights were cancelled, from CNBC: "About 6% of the airline’s mainline schedule, or 180 flights, were canceled on Sunday, according to flight-tracking site FlightAware.

"The airline said that equaled about 3% of its total flights, including those operated by regional carriers. About half of those were because of unavailable flight crews, showed a company list, which was viewed by CNBC. On Saturday, about 4%, or 123 flights, were canceled, the site showed."
