Pilot shortage clips budget airline Peach's wings

Help wanted.

TOKYO -- Peach Aviation will cut up to 2,088 flights from May to October because it cannot secure enough pilots, the Japanese low-cost carrier said Thursday.

     This amounts to 16% of the airline's total flights, nearly canceling out a planned increase in service during the summer.
