Alaska Airlines announced that it would cut off its schedule by about 10% for the rest of January. The decision was made in the wake of “unprecedented” numbers of employees calling in sick during the current Covid-19 rise. “As we have entered 2022, the continued impacts of Omicron have been disruptive in all our lives and unprecedented employee sick calls have impacted our ability to operate our airline reliably,” the company released a statement.
