The recent U.S. District Court ruling overturning the mask mandate is a clarion call that “America is officially open for business,” but it comes at a precarious time.

Key takeaways:

Pilot Shortages & Curtailed Schedules | Combined with high fuel prices, the drastic shortage of approximately 8,000-12,000 pilots has resulted in fewer destinations, and fewer flights.
