Gas prices have been on the rise (and pretty inconsistent) recently and we’ve seen some major flight cancellations during some of the busiest times of the year. And, with summer travel expected to surge in the coming months, one airline is cutting back its operations in the hopes that they can actually end up canceling fewer flights in the long run.
According to USA Today, this summer, Delta Airlines will but 100 daily flights from their schedule. From July 1st to August 7th, 2022, they will reduce these flights primarily in the United States and Latin America markets, in order to build “resilience” in their system, and improve their operational reliability.
Reliability has been an issue recently, with flight cancelations being an almost constant issue for travelers. We’ve seen United Airlines attempt to mitigate the risk of flight cancelations through a new contract deal, but it looks like this is the approach that Delta Airlines will be taking.
Those who already have a booking impacted by this change will be contacted via email and receive the next-best itinerary to get them to their destination. These passengers can also opt for a refund or choose another replacement flight instead.
And, Delta isn’t the only airline pre-emptively scaling back their operations for the summer — Southwest, Spirit, and JetBlue have reportedly also cut back summer flights.
