re: How will your job change post COVID, if any? - FredsGotSlacks
I’m a pilot but I fly corporate so if anything I’ll probably be busier as company personnel will want to avoid commercial air travel as much as possible. I feel bad for all my buddies at the airlines that only a few months ago were sitting pretty....
