Is there any risk of losing their landing slots in Japan permanently.

I mentioned this in another thread, but without business travel and tourism, there probably isn’t a viable business case for air transport. We’re likely only seeing the beginning of restricted international air travel as routes are suspended left and right.

Any airline flying to the U.S. from other countries needs to test all passengers and crew for the coronavirus before boarding the plane.

Any airline flying to the U.S. from other countries needs to test all passengers and crew for the coronavirus before boarding the plane.

And how do you propose thousands of passengers be tested at the airport before boarding the plane, using what medical method and using what facilities at the airport without causing long delays.

Current tests done at airports for arriving passengers can only catch people already exhibiting symptoms (Coronavirus or not), it does not detect people who are carriers but who are not exhibiting any form of symptoms yet.

I am flying into Haneda on March 12 on United. Would love to have the plane less than half full. More seat room for all. And perhaps more upgrades too.
