The story of a flight attendant infected with coronavirus takes a rather interesting turn. An airline in China will sell you a flight for less than cuppa joe costs. And an airline captain details his experience with a memorable-but-not-in-a-good-way passenger.

Those are some of the headlines and posts I came across today and thought you, too, may find interesting.

The Strange, Disappearing Story of the Flight Attendant Infected with Coronavirus

People here in Los Angeles are trying to piece together where exactly a Korean Air flight attendant diagnosed with coronavirus spent time during a two-day LA layover.

Online forums popular with Korean-Americans listed sightings of the affected FA. The local media began broadcasting information, too.

But then the reports inexplicably disappeared.

Matthew at Live and Let’s Fly has a pretty interesting take — check it out.

Flights for Under $5?!

How’s this for a flight deal?

China’s Spring Airlines is offering its loyalty program members the chance to purchase flights for as low as $4.10.

A Pilot’s Rudest Passenger

Captain John Cox recounts dealing with an especially rude passenger. I know you’ll be surprised — alcohol was involved.

Malaysia Airlines’ Biggest New Fan?

Business Insider’s Kate Taylor recently flew Malaysia Airlines. She was so impressed with the product that she’s “rooting for the struggling airline to survive.”

Something she found interesting — which sort of ties into this post — is that “Flight attendants forced everyone to not only take off their headphones but also turn off all phones,” during the safety briefing. “Mere airplane mode would apparently not suffice.”

Plans Stalled for Third Runway at London Heathrow

A planned third runway at London Heathrow airport is in limbo after a climate campaigners won an appeal against the project. This is probably good news for residents of Feltham!

  1. Maybe someone can help me out. The US is banning foreign nationals who have been to China (and maybe other countries) in the last 14 days from entering the country. Does that mean all flights from China or other applicable countries are cancelled? If not, what happens to aircrews? They cannot be quarantined.
