How bad is the coronavirus getting for airlines? One analyst says it feels like 9/11 again (his words — not mine). And an American Airlines passenger tried to open the emergency exit door during a flight (guess how that turned out?).

We’ll get to those and other headlines in a few minutes. But first, here’s a quick recap of this week at Rene’s Points!
