A health screener at one of the world’s busiest airports has purportedly tested positive for coronavirus. And a Las Vegas resort has found a fun way to multipurpose its swimming pool!

Ed Bastian Misses Another Meeting with President Trump — But Here’s Why

Several airline executives met yesterday with President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to discuss the ongoing coronavirus issue as it relates to air travel.

Absent, though, was Delta CEO Ed Bastian.

(You may recall that Mr. Bastian missed a meeting with President Trump earlier this year in lieu of a family vacation — a move which did not sit well with the Prez.)

Matthew at Live and Let’s Fly writes that Mr. Bastian didn’t attend the conference because he was attending his mother’s funeral. Ugh.

We send our condolences to Mr. Bastian and his family.
