American said that it was classed as a government contractor, and that it therefore fell under President Joe Biden's federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
More than 2,500 flights were canceled but officials have adamantly denied reports that pilots staged a sickout over a looming coronavirus vaccine mandate.

Employees can seek approval to skip the shots due to medical or religious reasons.
Another debunked conspiracy theory.
