Airlines Pushed Back Against Domestic Testing
Earlier this week airlines voiced their frustration after it was announced by CDC director Rochelle Walensky and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg that there were ongoing discussions about implementing pre-flight testing within the U.S.
Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly asked on a quarterly call Thursday, “Why pick on air travel?
“If you want to test people, test them, but test them before they go to the grocery store. Test them before they go to a restaurant,” Kelly said. “Test them before they go to a sporting event.”
