As Americans become increasingly desperate financially thanks to President Joe Biden‘s record-breaking inflation, they now have to deal with a failing airline infrastructure that leads to extensive delays and cancellations, RedState reported.
The cancellations left thousands stranded away from home, forced to pay for additional nights at hotels as well as food.
“I closed my business for several days to take my son on his first trip,” one passenger said. “I’ve lost thousands of dollars, and we aren’t on vacation, and now I’ve got to come up with more money just to find a place to stay tonight.”
The airline industry has been particularly vulnerable to Biden’s jab mandates, losing thousands of pilots, crew and ground control members. As a result, the industry no longer has the capacity to function as usual.
Biden’s Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg decided after his flight was delayed that airlines ought to be punished for their malfeasance.

When asked whether the state can interfere with private business by forcing them to hire more workers, Buttigieg noted that they might need more scrutinizing management.
“That is happening to a lot of people, and that is exactly why we are paying close attention here to what can be done and how to make sure that the airlines are delivering,” Buttigieg said.
According to the transportation whiz, he has told airline bosses to step up their customer service especially as the Fourth of July approaches.
“Now we’re going to see how those steps measure up,” Buttigieg said.
