The US may be in the midst of a fall wave of COVID-19, but passengers continue to return to the skies.
The TSA screened 1,031,505 passengers yesterday, which marked the first time that a million people took to the skies since March 16th, when 1,257,823 passengers were screened.
It’s still down from the 2.6 million that flew the year before, but it marks a massive recovery from April when as few as 87,534 passengers were screened, as airports turned into ghost towns.
I wrote about my return to the skies back in August on American and United. Since then I’ve flown a few more times, and I certainly prefer flying on airlines that block seats, such as Delta and JetBlue.
