Airlines For America COVID-19 Health Declaration

"Obviously, that's something that is of concern", Dr. Fauci said.

During a hearing of the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, Sanders criticized the airline, asking National Institute Of Allergy And Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci and CDC Director Robert Redfield whether packed planes or buses were an inherent safety risk. "I think in the confines of an airplane that becomes even more problematic".

In a statement released by American Airlines Group Inc., flights will be booked to capacity going forward, abandoning previous social distancing guidelines for operation, according to a report from Bloomberg. In late March, American Airlines said it would limit the number of passengers on aircrafts, not assigning half of main cabin middle seats on every flight.

"I can tell you that when they announced that the other day, obviously there was substantial disappointment with American Airlines", Dr. Redfield said. He said American was sending the wrong message to the public.

While flights will be able to booked to full capacity, American Airlines will continue to notify customers when the flight is crowded and let them move to a more open flight if it's available.
