This airport is coming like a ghost airport

Doesn’t matter what your elite status is or isn’t these days.
The emptiness of the airport makes it easy to get through, but there’s a tomb-like feeling, that reminds you of the reason for why there aren’t people flying.

Mom, Sister, Bro-in-law, Leigh, BJR. It’s really nice to be here even if the world outside is a bit messed up.
