One of the largest airlines in the world, American Airlines (AA), has announced that it will be booking flights to full capacity starting July 1 which, therefore, will end any effort to promote social distancing on its planes.
This, as the United States is currently the epidemic center for the coronavirus and has set records for newly reported cases within a day.
This move by AA matches the policy of United Airlines but contrasts sharply with rivals that limit bookings, in order to create space between passengers and minimise the risk of spreading the virus.
According to AA, it will continue to notify its customers if their flight is likely to be full, and let them change flights at no extra cost.
They also said they will let passengers change seats on the plane, if there is room for such and if they stay in the same cabin.
Understanding this, all seats on an American Airline plane will be sold.
