    that does not mean that they are cutting flights. We're going to run at dangerously low levels of staff in the FAA, and it's simply going to be a bit more risky to fly for a while. The government knows that a mid-air collision or two would be bad, but also would represent a tiny fraction of the 40,000 flights that occur every day. The public may choose to fly less once they understand the greater danger, but it won't be because flights are canceled.
