Two of America’s biggest airlines struggle to keep up with growing demand for post-COVID travel.
Last week, Southwest experienced three days of technical difficulties, prompting them to cancel hundreds of flights. Yikes.
This week, American Airlines followed suit, but not for technical difficulties. The company will cancel 950 flights between now and mid-July due to “labor shortages.”
Staffing problems aren’t unique to airlines, either— most service industries are seeing this problem.
Hopefully, major airlines will get it together soon.
