Call AMEX and ask if there is any earlier option on another airline. They'll get the original refunded. I know because I just did this an hour ago here at ORD

Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done.

This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.

Interesting. Let’s see if the uptick In cases continues to drive an uptick in hospitalizations and then in fatalities. Depends on how many of the cases are incidental or in very young people not prone to severe cases. But either way, look at the hospital capacity utilization figures! This is the untold story. Were we bending the curve to avoid unnecessary deaths due to overcrowded hospitals, or were we bending the curve to buy time for treatments and vaccine, or just to slow fatalities?
