ABC News: Vaccine Mandate, Staffing Shortages ‘Could Spell Disaster’ for Holiday Travel Plans

‘The deadline for TSA agents to be fully vaccinated combined with staffing shortages at many airlines could spell disaster for getting to your holiday destinations’

EXCERPT:

STRAHAN: "Now to potential holiday travel chaos. The deadline for TSA agents to be fully vaccinated combined with staffing shortages at many airlines could spell disaster for getting to your holiday destinations. Trevor Ault is live at Newark Airport with more. Good morning, Trevor."

AULT: "Good morning, Michael. The holiday travel crowds are coming. Delta says the Sunday after Thanksgiving they’re expecting 550,000 passengers. That is the most of any day since the start of the pandemic. But the airline industry has already seen several operational meltdowns this year and a lot of people are wondering if the system can handle this coming rush. This morning, with AAA predicting 4.2 million travelers will take to the sky this Thanksgiving, almost twice as many as last year, questions are looming about vaccine mandates and if airports will have enough employees to handle that crush of passengers.”
