The perfect storm is about to hit the airline industry as gas prices continue to skyrocket and labor continues to be an issue and people going on their July 4th vacations are the ones that are going to suffer.
Just in the past week, there have been thousands of delays and over 700 flight cancelations.
July 4th weekend is one of the busiest travel days in America.
The increase in passengers will only exacerbate the problems the airlines are already having.
Not only is there a general labor shortage for airlines, but one of the biggest issues is they don’t have enough pilots.
Being a pilot isn’t as glorious as it was 40 years ago, but it is a needed profession in this age of global travel.
With so many challenges, will the airlines be able to handle the Independence Day travel plans, or will it be another indicator that we are heading into a possible recession?
