Covid, and how we dealt with it. Or didn't deal with it, as the case may be.

IMO air travel is way down primarily because of individual businesses making choices not to send their employees on the road, and only somewhat because of government actions. Travel was declining well before states closed in April, and only recovered to a third when things opened again, in some states completely.

So the question is, did the supposedly economic-savvy administration help me much in the face of this problem? In my opinion, rather than getting people behind washing hands and wearing masks, they spent 8 months loathe to even agree to that and I have no job. So yes Covid, and yes the administration.

yes...a Democratic President would have used a oui•ja board instead of listening to the head of the CDC.

[QUOTE=nitefr8dog;3164326]yes...a Democratic President would have used a oui•ja board instead of listening to the head of the CDC who initially played it down.. Do you consult the White House about all your personal health decisions. Are you planning on calling Biden to see if you should get a flu shot or a hip replaced?

I'm not gonna say they couldn't have done a better job, because of course they could have. But I'm pretty sure every country in the world's aviation sector is suffering the same fate, more or less, regardless of government action/inaction. We were in this too deep before anyone had a clue.

Exactly! Plus its Aviation...you are going to go thru 2 or 3 furlongs in your career. Might as well get one under your belt.
