Delta's mask-optional policy is going so well that they're cutting 100 flights per day

A little over one month ago, Federal District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle voided the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s mask mandate that required people to wear masks at airports and other transportation “hubs.” (Mizelle is a hack who had virtually no experience in her job before getting jammed through the Donald Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell Federalist Society court packing process.) Delta Air Lines jumped on the news and quickly announced that they would no longer require customers or crew members to wear masks.

Five weeks later, how’s that going? CNN is reporting that on Thursday, Delta Air Lines announced that it will be cutting around 100 flights a day from its summer schedule. You know, one of those times in the year when people a lot of travel. Why would they do this? They’re doing it to "minimize disruptions and bounce back faster when challenges occur."
