Southwest Airlines is having a hard time getting back to normal operations after the winter storm, leaving thousands of travelers stranded with cancelled flights Tuesday and Wednesday.

The delay in company operations is said to possibly continue for several days. Many travelers flying with Southwest Airlines across the country have resorted to sleeping on floors and waiting hours in line.

Flight Aware, a flight tracking service reported by 11:30AM on Tuesday, more than 2,900 U.S. Flights were canceled and more than 2,400 others delayed.

In addition, 60 percent of Southwest flights were called off today and they have already cancelled  about 61 percent of its Wednesday flights and 14 percent of its Thursday flights.

According to Aviation experts, the storm had disproportionate impact on Southwest because the company configures its network in a very different way than other large airlines like American Airlines, Delta Air Lines etc. do.

Southwest prides itself on having good relations with its employees, but as of recently struggled with staffing shortages, causing high tension between management and workers.
