Tempers are flaring as airlines, unions, and even Congress point fingers at who’s to blame for the pilot shortage. Edward “Ned” Russell and Madhu Unnikrishnan discuss an innovative program at Southern Airways Express, as well as why Mesa CEO Jonathan Ornstein may have a point about foreign pilots flying into the U.S. and the challenges to changing the 1,500-hour rule. Later, the pair look into the great summer ahead for the European Big Three and why Azul is having a banner year.
