Passengers board a Southwest Airlines airplane at Hollywood Burbank Airport in Burbank, California on October 10, 2021. The airline has continued to cancel or delay hundreds of flights on Monday.

Southwest Airlines travelers are facing another day of disruptions. The carrier suspended hundreds of additional flights on Monday, after canceling and delaying thousands over the weekend — reportedly due to air traffic control issues and weather.
