Skift Take: Remarkably, the U.S. commercial aviation system has kept humming despite the government shutdown. Yes, there have been some long security lines, but it could get much worse. Airline executives know that, so they’re taking a stand. This is an industry that relies on the government to keep it running safely and efficiently.
