Southwest Airlines' pilot union said that there has been a rise in pilots suffering from fatigue due to "operational mismanagement" and it's causing a serious safety concern for crew and passengers.
In a letter to Southwest CEO Bob Jordan obtained by FOX Business, the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association (SWAPA) says that the number of fatigue reports to the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) and Southwest Airlines’ Fatigue Safety Advisory Group "have been climbing exponentially" since last summer and that there has been "no meaningful attempts by management to mitigate them."
