Southwest resumes Chicago operations after de-icing breakdown

Southwest resumes Chicago operations after de-icing breakdown

A representative from Southwest said in an online statement that the company "proactively" canceled 220 flights as of midday, and suspended service for the rest of Sunday "for the safety of our customers and crews".

A Southwest plane was forced to evacuate at California's John Wayne Airport on Monday night after a fire broke out on board, the airport said.

"We will continue to work with our customers on their travel plans and apologize for any inconvenience the disruption in service has caused", a Southwest spokeswoman said Monday.

As of 9 p.m. Sunday, a total of 264 flights on all airlines had been canceled out of Midway and another 235 were canceled out of O'Hare.

Midway alerted passengers via Twitter that the airport was still dealing with cancelled flights. Shortly after Christmas the carrier canceled 90 flights after freezing conditions at the airport slowed de-icing crews, according the Chicago Tribune.

This is the second time Southwest has dealt with de-icing difficulties at Chicago's Midway Airport since December. Travelers flying out of Midway should confirm flight status with their airlines.

When smoke appeared in the cabin, the crew made a decision to evacuate the plane. This means that snowfall of over 0.1 inches or more has been hitting Chicago.
