Ah, Hollywood magic. (Or Atlanta magic, in this case.)

Delta released a spiffy, impressive new video this afternoon showing off the airline’s defenses against coronavirus to keep all of us safe while we travel.

Workers fog planes; gate agents dutifully wipe down monitors; flight attendants carefully examine a cabin before presumably boarding their passengers with the power to stop a flight if not up to the rigorous standards they require.

One segment of the video features Sky Club agents performing a thorough cleaning that would make most crime scene cleanup crews blush.

But in the grand tradition of media production, it seems there were a few “enhancements” brought in.

Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruise lines announced today they’re suspending operations, following similar decisions by Princess and Viking. WKBW reports that Royal Caribbean will suspend US sailings for the month, effective tonight at midnight (I assume Eastern Daylight Time). Norwegian will halt sailings from today through April 11. It’s three brands — NCL, Oceania Cruises, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises — are all included. Is anyone else ready for the COVID-19 boat to sail off and never come back? — Chris

A couple of my family members are understandably concerned about traveling during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. They recently booked a trip using the companion certificate from my Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express — and are now considering postponing.

They were curious about what would happen to their reservation if they do, indeed, forgo their trip.

So I contacted Delta for some answers.
