United Cancels Return Flight

Cutting to the chase here, the reason for cancellations is NO PILOTS! The U.S carriers screwed them over so many times through mergers and bankruptcies, with twenty and thirty year pilots losing pensions and seniority, there isn't the desire to take up that career path like there used to be. The FAA mandatory retirement age uptick from 60 to 65 was a bandaid for the shortage but that'll soon end once all the boomers are retired. From this chair, there'll be a time when we'll be lucky to see a U.S. plane making once a week trips to African destinations. Welcome to the wonderful world of government control of a commercial enterprise.
That’s good information to know. I didn’t realize the situation with the pilot shortage.
