Airlines Cut Flights As Coronavirus Spikes Across U.S.


So much for the airlines getting back to normal! Most airlines are pulling pack plans to add more flights amid the surge in COVID-19 across the U.S. United Airlines had planned to add 25-thousand more flights next month, but is scaling it back a little.Flights into New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Chicago have added rules about two-week mandatory quarantines for travelers from certain hard-hit states, lowering demand for flights into major hubs.United said it expects travel to be lighter until there's a treatment or vaccine for COVID-19. New bookings started to climb, but have since dropped.The companies are also dealing with making sure passengers flying out of “spike” hubs are told to quarantine when flying in to certain states.
