JOHNNY “GIOIA” JONES: This isn’t a problem they can just fix because you can’t just go make more pilots right away. That’s part of the problem. But I will tell you this: I live in Atlanta. I fly in and out of Atlanta airport where Delta is headquartered. The flight attendants, the pilots for Delta are phenomenal, and they watch us. They’re watching right now.
The management in Delta has had hiccups, I think in the grand scheme of airlines. I don’t know if any [siamo] better or worse, but they kind of got stuck in this problem because of the pandemic. intendo, you have all these pilots that go and retire early. There’s all this ambiguity on are they going to require vaccines or are they not? Delta did step on it when they started basically charging an insurance premium to those that chose not to get the vaccine. But this is the most important part of the segment is that nobody makes Kamala Harris look better than Pete Buttigieg.

And he wasn’t on paternity leave for all of it. And he never has a good answer.

They’re not going to fix it.
