Sequester takes flight

The Sequester is affecting the air traffic controllers and that is affecting the on-time rates of the airlines pretty hard.  Iím hearing from my circles that airline travel is not quite what it used to be. I canít remember the last time I took a flight that wasnít either 95%+ full or overbooked.

Of course, Iím old enough to remember when they Ďsegregatedí the flights Ė the last 10 or so rows were for smokers. Getting a seat was not a problem provided you didnít object to smelling like Marlboro when you exited the plane.

Air travel is very different today.  Delays, rules, travelers going hungryÖ..and it couldnít happen at a worse time Ė Spring.  Weíve seen snow in Denver and storms in the Midwest and East that have compounded the problem.  The Sequester cuts are just adding to the frustration.

Iím sure itís tough to determine who should take the initial brunt of tax cuts. Iím thinking that if you want to get some attention, the airports are a logical choice.  This is the area that affects our business travelers and vacation-bound citizens looking for some downtime.  Itís probably not the downtime theyíd prefer.

One website that was borne from the frustration is Donít Ground America. The comments are (forgive the pun) flying in.  For me, it sounds like a great time to take a drive!
