What a crazy and insane month. Would have never thought we would see what we have seen happen live on video. Not just that, we had a massive Delta meltdown and a crushing devaluation of SkyMiles (yet again) in the middle of it all. For me I am mostly just happy April is over and we can start to look toward the summer and see what that brings. Did you miss any of this? Take a look and time to catch up:
