Re: TSA Screening Numbers - Charts and Comparisons

Except that we are going into lockdowns again more or less in TX, AZ, and FL. Things are getting worse, not better. That’s a statistical fact, although yes it will eventually get better. While you may have 50% of the US population willing to fly, airlines need business travel to come back and it’s ...
