Default Imminent Travel Shutdown

Anyone else hearing rumblings of a domestic travel ban? Allegedly, headquarters is sending non-DAL based leadership back home tomorrow morning. An announcement to be made in the coming hours.

I thought it was the NSC (semantics, I know), but they probably don’t want to freak people out until it’s time to freak people out.

Announcement from where? Curious if you mean internal to Southwest or is it a nationwide announcement. Thanks.

Maybe they’re just having office folks work from home. Talked to someone in training admin yesterday that was doing that.

Correct. HDQ was issued a "Code Yellow" last night that everyone who is able to do so is to work from home beginning today through Apr 3rd.
