10,000 Flights Delayed Over Holiday Weekend As Aviation Chaos Concerns White Hous

Flight tracking website FlightAware shows more than 10,000 flights were delayed or canceled nationwide between Friday and Sunday due to pilot shortages and bad weather, which comes days after top airline executives spoke with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg about how to resolve flight disruptions.

Recently, United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby told investors that the shortage could last for years.

“The pilot shortage for the industry is real, and most airlines are simply not going to be able to realize their capacity plans because there simply aren’t enough pilots, at least not for the next five-plus years,” Kirby said. – Source: ZeroHedge
