People Flying in the Masses despite expensive Air Fares
After a long duration of covid restrictions, myriads of people are taking to the skies.
Security personnel at US airports are witnessing some of the busiest days at work since COVID-19 began. TSA data showed that agents screened 2,297,374 people on Friday, March 11th, marking it the 3rd busiest day over the last two years.
