11:38 pm
delays partly because of a short j of staff and pre-existing situation. there was air space closed for navy training exercises. southwest had delays. other airlines did, too. it seems like southwest didn't plan around that stuff and recover from it, as well as other airlines. when one thing goes wrong, it can cascade quickly. >> southwest did not manage the situation as well as the other airlines. >> from what we see, it looks like southwest had trouble managing their issue. and the nature how southwest works. it's a point-to-point airline, as opposed to the other carriers

>> do you see long-term impact? i've been seeing people online upset. will this be a long-term problem for southwest? it probably won't be a long-term problem. southwest, especially, they have competitive fares and holds on certain markets. it's possible they don't take a long-term hit. there will be a financial hit from this. they will owe refunds and that kind of thing. >> does this say anything about holiday travel? a lot of people getting ready
11:41 pm
for that. this would be a disaster at thanksgiving or christmas. is it predictable? >> a lot of the airlines are doling out the schedule to as many flights of the staff. and with the equipment they have, in the event something goes wrong, like what happened this weekend, that can make it harder. smaets something we could see around the holidays. there's not much room for error. for consumers, the biggest piece of advice, is try to plan as well as you can. fly out early. fly out late. really hope for the best and try to take care of yourself. >> david, thanks for being here tonight.
