I'll let Unimatic deliver this gem of a news announcement:

**********  DECEMBER AIRCRAFT SCHEDULE REDUCTION  **********
  
EFFECTIVE DEC. 15, SEVERAL AIRCRAFT WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE
NORTH AMERICA SCHEDULE. THIS WILL INCREASE AIRCRAFT RELIABILITY
BY PROVIDING SPARE AIRCRAFT FOR THE SYSTEM OPERATION. THE RESULT
WILL BE A COMBINATION OF CHANGES TO FLIGHT DEPARTURE TIMES AND
CANCELLATIONS. THE SCHEDULE REDUCTION WILL AFFECT 13 AIRCRAFT
FROM DEC. 15 TO JAN. 7, AND REDUCE TO SIX AIRCRAFT FROM JAN. 8
TO FEB. 15.

FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WILL BE NOTIFIED VIA PHONE OR CREW SCHEDULE
CHANGE NOTICE (CSCN) STUFFED IN MAILBOXES OF SIGNIFICANT ID
CHANGES DURING DEC. 15-30. MINOR FLIGHT DEPARTURE TIME CHANGES
WILL BE POSTED ON THE DOMICILE SCHEDULING INFORMATION BOARD.
REASSIGNMENTS WILL BE MADE IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTIONS 9.B.
AND 8.J. OF THE AGREEMENT.
  
ANY CHANGES TO THE SCHEDULE FOR JAN. 8 AND BEYOND WILL BE
REFLECTED IN ADDENDUM KEY PAGES FOR THE JANUARY BID. IN CERTAIN
DOMICILES AND IF NECESSARY, BIDS WILL BE DELAYED TO ENSURE
FLIGHT ATTENDANTS HAVE THE MOST CURRENT INFORMATION FOR BIDDING.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE SCHEDULE CHANGES FOR DEC. 31-JAN. 7 CANNOT
BE INCLUDED IN THE BID PACKAGE, AS THE CHANGES WILL NOT BE
AVAILABLE UNTIL AFTER BIDS OPEN. ONCE THESE SCHEDULE CHANGES
ARE AVAILABLE, THEY WILL BE LOADED INTO THE COMPUTER AUTOMATI-
CALLY. REASSIGNMENTS WILL BE MADE IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTIONS
9.B. AND 8.J. OF THE AGREEMENT. FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WILL SEE A
NEW ID IN THEIR LINES OF FLYING ONCE THE REASSIGNMENT IS MADE.
  
THE SCHEDULE REDUCTION WILL ONLY AFFECT NORTH AMERICA MARKETS.
THIS INCLUDES MOST FLEET TYPES. NOT ALL DOMICILES WILL BE
AFFECTED BY THE SCHEDULE CHANGES.

Notice anything missing from this announcement?  Anything at all?

Look closer...

No apology.

Look closer...

No regret of any kind except for the word 'unfortunately'.

Look closer...

Not even the usual boilerplate, 'I'm sorry for the inconvenience'.
