Why Flying Is Bad And Will Only Get Worse With Time
By Jessica Merjaneh and Tina Fares
Plane cancellations, flight congestion, tariff increases, and violence are the new common occurrences in air travel. Passenger and crew flights are only getting worse and worse
The issues stem from an operational meltdown where Southwest Airlines and American Airlines have canceled thousands of flights in the last four days of the past few weeks, which stranded tens of thousands of angry passengers each time.
Lack of staff has led to overworked flight attendants and most canceled flights. With COVID-19, the vaccine is mandatory which leads to even more staff shortages. Ticket prices have increased due to fewer flight options. And the mask controversy is not helping the current situation.
These issues don’t look like they will end soon; perhaps it looks like it will get worse rather than better.
