Southwest Airlines on 'operational meltdown' after thousands of flights canceled

Southwest Airlines canceled more than 3,000 flights over the weekend. The company has given a multitude of causes for the delays, but the exact cause is still unknown. Lydia Hu, Fox Business Correspondent, joined the Annie Frey Show to give us an update on the situation.
