The American airline industry has been thrown into mayhem by a shortage of pilots who have either been kicked out for refusing to take the deadly jab, or those pilots who have been jabbed, failed regular medical checks due to vaxx damage.
Domestic flights have been cancelled, re-routed or delayed causing complete confusion among passengers throwing the entire country into disarray.
Travelers flying over Memorial Day weekend faced a slew of delays and cancellations across the country, with over 2,500 flights total canceled since In May, reported Reuters. According to flight-tracking website FlightAware, over 400 flights traveling within, out of, or into the US were canceled on one day alone, while about 2,400 were delayed.
The carrier with the most issues was Delta Air Lines, which canceled around 700 flights over the long weekend in May. The carrier told Insider it was “enacting cancelations at least 24 hours in advance of departure time wherever possible,” and accommodated over 90% of impacted customers on later flights.
The carrier blamed the disruptions on air traffic control issues, weather, and COVID-related sick calls, according to a research note from Cowen analyst Helane Becker
