Travellers and airlines are feeling the stress of the high demand for travel going into the summer.

Passengers say planes and airports are full as some airlines cut back on scheduled flights due to short staffing.

According to a report, people spent $8.8 billion on domestic flights in March, as bookings rose 12 percent.

Tuesday, Delta airlines pilots are expected to picket and demand improvements in scheduling following what the Air Line Pilots Association calls a rise in pilot fatigue.

A spokesperson for Delta airlines said the picket will no impact operations.

In recent weeks Alaska airlines has been cancelling flights and announced it’s cutting some of its schedule because of the pilot shortage.

It was a little stressful wondering if our flight was going to get cancelled and they wouldn’t know when, said traveller Whitney Emge. Demand is also driving up prices.
