According tomedia reports, the new crown virus pandemic is engulfing almost all of the world’s business sector, but it is particularly bad for some industries such as tourism and hotels. Airlines have been particularly hard hit, with the flying experience now completely different from the start of the year. In a newly announced change, American Airlines is now asking passengers to wear masks — at least one airline, United Airlines (UA), has warned that if passengers refuse to wear masks after boarding, they will be blacklisted internally and temporarily denied them re-flights for some time.
For some, in-flight drinks and snacks from flight attendants may help ease their nervousness. Unfortunately, this is beginning to disappear. Airlines such as Delta Air Lines, JetBlue, American Airlines and Virgin Atlantic have begun canceling in-flight beverage services during the New Crown pandemic to reduce passenger contact with passengers, CBS News reported. This may be to be expected, as everyone associated with air travel is trying to find ways to minimize the spread of the virus.
But JetBlue has implemented a response — providing passengers with pre-sealed bags of snacks and bottled water. Meanwhile, passengers at JetBlue Mint can enjoy pre-sealed lunch boxes with a single serving of beer and wine.
In any case, these measures are certainly temporary. As the popularity fades, these airlines will no doubt re-offer drinks to passengers.
