The Blue Line light-rail stop at Terminal 1 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The Blue Line LRT connects the airport's two terminals.

As the end of July approaches, longtime flight attendant Shannon Thein is filled with dread.

When air traffic was decimated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Thein and other employees at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport could park at Terminal 1 where there was plenty of room following the outbreak.

Now, as Americans make up for lost time and pack planes during the summer of "revenge travel," the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) plans to move employee parking back to Terminal 2 by Aug. 1 to make room for air travelers at the main terminal.
