CLEVELAND — Flights out of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are being canceled leading up to the holiday weekend.

So far, five flights have been canceled from departing the tarmac:

  • Delta #4863 to New York, NY
  • Delta #4712 to New York, NY
  • Delta #5043 to New York, NY
  • American #5367 to Washington, DC
  • United #1786 to Los Angeles, CA

The cancellations come after Delta pilots pickets for higher wages and more time off as a result of the uptick in travel after the pandemic, according to Delta spokesperson Morgan Durrant.

"This informational exercise by some of our off-duty pilots will not disrupt our operation for our customers. Earlier this year, Delta, ALPA, and a representative from the National Mediation Board restarted our mediated contract negotiations that had been paused for almost two years due to the pandemic," she said. "Our goal remains to continue providing Delta pilots with an industry-leading overall contract with the best compensation based on pay, retirement, work rules, and profit-sharing."
