Antidotally, I know of 2 couples who ended-up postponing their weddings that were to have been traditional big gathering/receptions here in the states and ended up doing a small family destination wedding in CUN.

I'm asking this to anyone who has recently traveled to JFK. How does it work once you arrive at JFK? Do the virus police meet you at the gate? Is there a checkpoint? You may think you can say whatever you want on the internet, but asking about how to break the law is never smart. The internet isn’t...Jump to post
This is an all around crappy situation. If you don't allow the pins, an FA who didn't have a good day can use it to claim AA is anti BLM where as allowing the pins is going to lead to someone wearing a MAGA pin and causing issues on a flight. Part of this is stemming from the recent incident on a De...Jump to post
It's surprising to me that WN does not fly between the NYC area to the Miami area. There is a very large amount of traffic between the two and B6s success proves there's a market outside of the typical ULCCs and the US3.Jump to post
I wonder how they will do customs on the CUN-CMH route. The only other international flight into Columbus is a CRJ from YYZ which clears US customs in Canada. Cancun to my knowledge does not have any US customs and CMH does not have any sterile areas for international flights (they do haves a custom...Jump to post

It looks like the Atlanta Braves continue with DL8877. They are at the Mets tonight and are flying out of JFK instead of the usual LGA. Weird. JFK is right next to Citi Field.

Because of the situation worsening in southern states airlines are fearful of another wave of cancellations and so all the airlines are cutting prices again.

Not surprising, the little carriers have been able to gobble up a lot of traffic.

At the same time in the US you have Congress trying to ban end-to-end encryption through backdoors and Australia has already done so. Also your zoom calls?

It's unlikely to fly for much longer. Off the top of my head there are either none or just one more launches booked for Stargazer.
