Not sure why it is still bookable. We were updated at work and her is Delta's own media notice on the suspension. http...

DL's PDX to Tokyo is suspended immediately through May 31st. Sad, but understandable. Interesting to see what Icelandair, Condor, and BA decide to do as well. Similarly, will the start of PDX-LHR on BA be delayed or pushed back to next year? PDX-AMS likely affected also. But if all this seriously s...
