Your upcoming non-stop New York-to-Denver flight (trip confirmation #SCR3WD) has been impacted by a cancellation, just like thousands of other itineraries this summer. We famously apologize for any inconvenience.
This change may have occurred for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, the nationwide pilot shortage, issues with our fleet of rapidly deteriorating aircraft, inclement weather owing to now irreversible climate change, and our own personal amusement.
We automatically rebooked you on the “next available flight,” a loose term that covers any flight we choose at random by throwing darts at an old map. We did not, however, take into account (or read) any of the date/time preferences you provided, nor the reason for your trip (“attending funeral tomorrow”).

Want to Reschedule?
You’re welcome to make changes to this new itinerary at no additional cost! Unless, of course, if you value your time and patience. To reschedule, follow this barely working Web portal to a series of difficult captchas and locate our support phone number Press 0 at the correct moment to speak to a representative (current wait time is seven hours, regardless of when you call), at which point you’ll be connected with an overworked agent who will dictate to you the URL of a live chat , character by character. The live chat provides our fax number, to which you may send your flight-change request, personal information, and meal preferences so that we may better assist you.
Yes, our airline received billions of dollars in pandemic-relief funds, encouraging many pilots to retire, but we’re now pretending that we’ve spent all that. Please hang in there! And if you know any pilots personally do urge them to stop picking for increased wages and get back to laboring.
Thank you for flying with us. We look forward to eventually/possibly serving you on board.
Your new flights were just cancelled.
