Default Peak 2016

Talking to the "old guys" and my personal experience, albeit with only one other peak to compare...
It seems as if pre-Christmas went extremely well. Even last night (Christmas eve) with sheets of rain and a few lightning bolts, my flight, at least. was only 50 minutes late. And the week prior was "uneventful." Maybe me and my 500 new hire friends helped a bit.

I agree.

I was not in Indy for the winter event, but Memphis seemed to go smoother than normal.

The manning has gotten better. Maybe they've finally realized that you should build a church for Easter when that's when the majority of your work gets done. I also think the retirement incentive kept a lot of guys thru peak, as it was intended.
