Take Flight Tomorrow: Hundreds of Flights Cut at U.S. Airports As Pilot Shortage Worsens

86 communities have lost more than 10% of daily departures.

 Washington, DC, September 8, 2014 - American airports, both large and small, have suffered major cuts in service ranging from 10 percent to nearly 81 percent as airlines have been forced to cancel flights in part due to the growing pilot shortage.
