In a stunning move, Airlines for America, a powerful group representing major airlines, has unleashed a blistering attack on the Biden administration for their absolute failure to handle the air traffic controller staffing crisis. The group, which includes heavyweights like American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, is demanding that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and FAA Administrator Michael Whitaker get their act together and fix this mess, pronto.

According to reports, the situation is so dire that controllers are being pushed to the brink, working mandatory overtime and six-day weeks just to keep the planes from crashing into each other. This is an absolute travesty, and frankly, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of the bumbling Biden administration and their lackeys. They should be ashamed of themselves.
As if things couldn’t get any worse, the FAA has decided to extend cuts to minimum flight staffing at busy New York City airports until 2024. Can you believe this? It’s like they’re actively trying to make our lives miserable! And to add insult to injury, the holiday travel season is shaping up to be a complete disaster, with thousands of flights delayed or canceled due to these staffing shortages and Mother Nature’s wrath.
