Air travel problems that impede flights’ abilities to proceed as planned have been a major hardship as of late. This is especially an issue for people during high travel times, notably holidays and other periods.
Recently, airlines faced a warning from Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. He made it clear these companies can incur various government retributions if these irregularities with flights continue to persist.
Likewise, Buttigieg explained the federal government reserves the right to strong-arm airlines into hiring more staff to increase their bandwidth.
Meanwhile, airlines have now cited the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as the root cause of air travel complications.
The latest from US airlines
Multiple airlines assert the FAA struggles with understaffing issues, therefore causing a laundry list of problems with flights on the East Coast.
With the 4th of July holiday coming up, Airlines for America is seeking to learn the FAA’s procedures moving ahead. Apparently, this information is necessary in order for airlines to put together their own plans.
