And from LaGuardia, things would have only gotten much, much worse, with sick-outs elsewhere. As I understand it, we were days away from watching the aviation system in this country experiencing major disruption. Unlike having hundreds of thousands of employees quietly sitting at home, save for the occasional "poor me" interview, the optics of having hundreds of thousands and potentially millions of delayed passengers of all stripe would have been there for all to see.
