Hundreds of Southwest Pilots Picket Dallas Airport Over Pay and Conditions

At least 1,300 pilots from Southwest Airlines stood on a picket line on June 21 outside Love Field in Dallas, Texas, to protest their pay and working conditions.

Shannon Murray recorded this video of pilots lined up holding placards with slogans such as “Our passengers and pilots deserve better” and “Southwest’s operation – from first to worst.”

The demonstration was organized by the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association (SWAPA), which protested what it called schedule mismanagement leading to pilots working on their days off. Credit: Shannon Murray via Storyful
