Southwest Airlines CEO apologizes for unconstitutional vax mandates - says Biden admin is forcing them to do it

The CEO of Southwest Airline has issued an apology over the company’s ‘unconstitutional’ vaccine mandate, saying that his company has been forced to violate the liberty of tends of thousands of workers because of the Biden administration.

Gary Kelly told CNBC that the vaccine mandate is being forced upon them by the federal government.

“I’ve never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate. I’m not in favor of that. Never have been,” Kelly said.

“But the executive order from President Biden mandates that all federal employees and then all federal contractors, which covers all the major airlines, have to have a mandate in place by Dec. 8, so we’re working through that.”

“My goal, obviously, is that no one loses their job. The objective here, obviously, is to improve health and safety, not for people to lose their jobs,” Kelly warned.

His appearance on CNBC came after Southwest suddenly canceled thousands of flights over the weekend. reports: “I want to apologize to all of our customers. This is not what we want,” Kelly said. “Unfortunately, it just takes a couple of days to get things back on track.”

Southwest oddly blamed the mass flight cancellations on bad weather and traffic control staffing issues.

No other major airline experienced those issues on the same level, despite ferrying passengers across the country in the same airspace using the same control towers and personnel.

The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement that “there had been no air traffic control shortages since Friday.”

“Some airlines continue to experience scheduling challenges due to aircraft and crews being out of place,” the FAA said.

The only thing out of place is Southwest folding to an unconstitutional mandate forcing Americans to choose between bodily autonomy and their jobs.

While many airlines were outspoken earlier this year on a number of issues — such as allowing people to vote without proving their identity — the same companies are now complying with actual government tyranny.

To Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, asking voters to show ID is tantamount to racism. Meanwhile, both airlines have punished their own employees who have chosen not to get vaccinated.

Last weekend, failing to stand up for medical freedom apparently caught up with Southwest. Kelly let his employees down, and many of them reportedly paid him back by showing the country just how dangerous Biden’s mandate could be.
