I dont work at Air Wisconson but the Thanksgiving holiday passenger bump appears to be temporary. United announced that December is not what they expected it to be and have plans to cancel flights due to seeing ticket cancelations. And with the CDC is expecting a super spreader event of covid over Thanksgiving, it may get worse. Not positive news for the industry.

No Thanksgiving meals in MKE on Thursday because we arenít operating out of MKE on Thursday yet thereís MKE open time on Thursday which means we are operating out of MKE on Thursday.

I heard people aren't booking that far out, which I'm sure doesn't help anything. With schedules changing all the time, it's probably no good to book anyway unless it's the same month.

Ya not for nothing, but it was under this administration that I lost my job so, maybe dial back the amazing prosperity rhetoric a little.

i work at UA and havenít heard they yet. Do you have a link to a press release?

Yes but that does not mean people will continue to fly. I just finished a NB trip with loads 80-95% range

That first sentence was supposed to say are not operating MKE flights. You get the idea. It was all just my pathetic attempt at sarcasm and it probably failed.

Yes, it failed. Hard to convey sarcasm on a board. Intonation of the voice and facial expression are missing. Emojis do help.
