Faced with staffing shortages, and a pilot shortage in particular, many airlines have already canceled thousands of flights for the summer season, including Southwest Airlines, which cut nearly 20,000 summer flights, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Delta is canceling 100 daily departures from destinations in the U.S. and Latin America, affecting travel from July 1 to Aug. 7. The airline published an open letter to customers Thursday acknowledging both the labor shortage and customers’ frustrations with canceled and delayed flights.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg met with airline CEOs late Thursday to discuss how to improve their operations.

In an interview Saturday with the AP, Buttigieg said that his own flight from Washington to New York was canceled Friday, leading him to drive, instead, and that he was pushing airline leaders to ensure they could fulfill their planned summer flights with the staffs they have.

Buttigieg added that the Transportation Department could take enforcement actions against airlines, but he cautioned that he wanted to wait to see how airline travel during the July Fourth weekend and the rest of the summer season unfolds first.
