The FAA reported today that flights have been briefly shutdown at LaGuardia Airport in NYC reportedly due to a shortage of air traffic controllers affected by the ongoing government shutdown.
Ultimately the ground stop was lifted, but this stoppage is emblematic of the difficulties facing airlines, airports and the TSA writ large.
The government shutdown, now in its 35th day, has affected both air traffic controllers and Transportation Security Administration agents responsible for airport screenings.
Is this the beginning of the end for the ongoing government shutdown now the longest in US History?
Here at the CBoardingGroup we certainly hope so!
