Major US Airline CEO Said That it is The Pilot Shortage That is Primarily Restraining Airlines to go into Full-Blown Recovery

05th Feb 2023

United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby, during its earnings call, shared a bleak insight into the current recovery of the airline industry from the loss during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We believe the industry capacity aspirations for 2023 and beyond are simply unachievable,” said Kirby. “That means the system simply can’t handle the volume today, much less the anticipated growth. Like it or not, that’s just the new reality and the new math for all airlines.”

Kirby said that it is the pilot shortage that is primarily restraining airlines to go into full-blown recovery.
