US Passenger Reports 'Mostly Empty' Plane as Airlines Suspend Flights Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

A passenger traveling from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Orlando, Florida, shared footage of an almost empty Delta Airlines flight on March 9 as the spread of the new coronavirus led to airlines across the globe suspending flights or modifiying services.

Delta announced it would waive fees for changes to bookings between March 1 and March 31 to accommodate people making changes to their travel plans as a result of the outbreak.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended postponing travel to areas under Warning Level 3, but has not grounded domestic US flights. Credit: @workingitoutnow via Storyful
