Flying During Shutdown

Has anyone flown recently? I’m going away next weekend and wondering what to expect at airports.

you basically need to come from a target school pedigree/work at prestigious firm in the US/have a really good connection.

I have a flight Sunday and I am hoping it doesn’t impact me. 

Unfortunately, while TSA agents are still required to work, the shutdown has impacted their supply of anal lubricant.

Just flew into Tampa for a wedding. Can confirm nothing has changed.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Seems hit or miss. Some things are closed due to no workers, some are not as quick, and others are OK 

The very strategic TSA has been preparing us for this day for many years by providing rude, slow and arbitrary service.  Shutdown?  Didn’t even notice.

The TSA agents living check to check are calling in sick and driving Uber to make ends meet.

rough rough rough. only 40% of americans can handle a $1000 emergency! a 40 percentile income is about 45k, a tsa agent makes less than that.

I love my cheese. I got to have my cheddar.

Thanks Pelosi.

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!
