Sect. of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was attacked mercilessly when flights were chronically late/cancelled [View all]

And now, to little fanfare, Buttigieg points out himself how much things have improved. GREAT JOB, PETE!

Secretary Pete Buttigieg
Wednesday was the busiest travel day of Thanksgiving air travel & the system did well. Cancellation rates held below 1% & we saw lower-than-average delay rates of 1.8%. Thank you to the aviation workers who made this possible & helped passengers get to their destinations safely.
