@ByERussell Demand already outpaces 2019 this summer for @CapeAir but the airline can’t fly as much as it wants because of the pilot shortage. CEO Linda Markham worries that current airline hiring tactics are detrimental to the industry as a whole.
@ByERussell .”@flySEA will be the first major airport to implement Customs and Border Protection’s ‘Bag First’ process,” where arriving international travellers collect their bags before proceeding through passport control.
@ByERussell Former Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly famously said roughly 20% of business travel would never return after the pandemic. It still hasn’t returned in full, but it’s recovering faster than the airline expected, reports @munnikrishnan . $LUV.
@ByERussell “Long-term, we do need to work on regional pilot supply,” says American CEO Isom on the pilot shortage. He cites AA’s pilot cadet program, but no mention of the industry coming together to address the issue as Cape Air’s CEO called for earlier this week.
@ByERussell Microsoft says there has been a significant uptick in internal travel bookings in recent weeks, a day after Alaska Airlines said it saw a 50-point improvement in bookings by an unnamed tech company over the same period. Coincidence?.
