Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Wednesday that he believes airline travel will improve ahead of the upcoming holidays and that U.S. carriers need to make sure the system is ready.
"I think it's going to get better by the holidays. We're really pressing the airlines to deliver better service," he said during an appearance on "The Late Late Show with James Corden." "So many people have been delayed and been canceled. It's happened to me several times this summer. And, the fact is: they need to be ready to service the tickets that they're selling."
Cancellations and delays have plagued airports over the summer, frustrating travelers and sending airline workers scrambling.
