Southwest Airlines was fined $140 million for operational errors during the 2022 winter. “Millions were left stranded after Southwest cancelled more than 16,900 flights during a busy week of holiday travel last winter.”
“The majority of the fine will go towards compensating future Southwest passengers affected by cancellations or delays caused by the airline, while $35m will be paid to the government.”
“‘If airlines fail their passengers, we will use the full extent of our authority to hold them accountable,’ said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg in a statement on Monday.” https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-67751069
The federal government gets $35 million. Punitive.
Zeus punished Prometheus because he stole fire to give back to mankind. He was chained to a rock in the Caucasus Mountains, and every day an eagle came and ate part of his liver.
Buttigieg is Zeus. His crew feed on ambrosia and liver. Be gone, Z, and all your gods.
