“Pilot Shortage Crisis will Become Bigger and Bigger,” Says Travel Expert

The Points Guy Founder and CEO Brian Kelly, during an interview with “Mornings with Maria,” referring to pilot shortage crisis, deems that the worst is yet to come.

“I think we should all be keeping an eye on the pilot shortage. I think this crisis will become bigger and bigger. We don’t have the same amount of recruits coming out of the air force, joining commercial airlines like we used to. It’s really expensive to become a pilot. So there, you know, the airlines are scrambling and tons and tons of pilots are retiring. So this could be, you know, another kink to add to it. When they don’t have enough pilots, there’s less flights, and less flights means more expensive flights,” said Brian Kelly.
