Biden’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is completely unqualified for his job, and this epic travel failure is yet more proof of just that.
The quality of airline service has no doubt been on the decline in recent years, but Sec. Buttigieg promised American’s during an appearance on national television that he would have the glaring issues fixed in time for the holidays.
The truth, however, was the exact opposite.
Holiday travel turned out to be an utter nightmare thanks to a slew of cancellations by Southwest Airlines. The airline was forced to cut more than 2/3 of all their flights scheduled for several days at a time when people all over the country were just trying to make it in time to spend the holidays with family.
85% of their domestic flights were cancelled entirely which led to a widespread chaos and confusion as travelers’ luggage was lost and people were forced to drive long distances to their loves ones’ homes.
While Southwest claimed that the cancellations were due to weather, the number of flights cancelled by that single airline FAR outpaced the others – indicating it was not as simple as they claimed.
All of this was completely preventable by Buttigieg but he failed to conduct a single audit on the airlines to ensure they were adequately prepared for the seasonal travel surge that comes with the holidays.
Pete dropped the ball, adding to the long ever-growing list of his failures while serving in the role.
