@ByERussell Alaska CEO Minicucci is promoting an every-airline-for-themselves approach to solving the pilot shortage. “Is [the pilot pipeline] a risk for our growth plans going forward? Absolutely … Now you have to take destiny into your own hands.” $ALK.

@ByERussell Alaska Airlines is the latest major U.S. carriers to acknowledged a pilot training backlog that is forcing it to cut flights this summer. “It’s a question of how we get the pilots through the schoolhouse, and out on the line.”

@ByERussell American forecasts a 40-point recovery in corporate demand, to 90% of 2019 levels, in Q2.  Corporate demand was at 50% of three years ago in Q1. $AAL.
