BIG NEWS IN THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY IN AMERICA — YOU NEED TO READ THIS.
According to multiple reports (click this friendly link), air traffic control officials in Chicago and New York have fallen ill from the Coronavirus. Reports indicate that because of such officials in a wider capacity are preparing to shut down domestic flights to prevent the virus from further overtaking the control-centers.
Airline stat reports show that as of this writing at least 40% of all airline schedules have been cut and flights are even only flying at 15% capacity.
Multiple centres have had to be closed due to disinfecting and cleaning purposes according to sites like the WSJ (but because of their rather inconvenient paywall on their stories we’re not allowed to hyperlink them here.)
There is no official word yet from either the airlines or the government.
