I think there's a good chance that domestic air travel

 
will be curtailed by the federal government soon. Delta has already cut 70% of its domestic flights, and other airlines are operating only a skeleton fleet and canceling flights, too.

Pretty much nobody is flying voluntarily right now. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Trump administration and Congress handed the airlines a big pile of money and then ordered domestic air travel to shut down almost entirely. That way, the airlines could pocket the money, lay off everyone, and wait it out.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think it could happen. Bad news for people who must travel, though. I worry about my 95-year-old parents having a health crisis and not being able to fly out there quickly. It would take three days for me to drive to California.

Fingers crossed!

so what's your take on this thought rockhead?

If airfare is curtailed by the Federal government then you will blame President Trump for being a fascist dictator restricting the citizens the right to freely travel about the Country.

If airfare is not curtailed by the Federal government then you will blame President Trump for not acting to stop the spread of the virus.

Either way, the President is wrong in your eyes.
Trump Won.  Get over it!
