UK airline Flybe has gone into administration, putting 2,000 jobs at risk, after a bid for fresh financial support failed.
The Exeter-based carrier said the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on demand for air travel was partly to blame for its collapse.
Its website now advises customers to "not travel to the airport" unless they have arranged an alternative flight.
Flybe boss Mark Anderson said he was "very sorry" for the firm's collapse.

Looks like this thing is turning out to be the fastest and biggest decline in passenger air traffic since 9/11.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

That's the Israeli media way of saying our fake news was exposed.

That's right. Disappeared but just saw a ynet alert saying the same thing. I'm assuming that a LY exec must have told maariv that a few flights will be cancelled, due to lack of demand. Not closing routes IMHO

Key takeaways is that LY cancelled last night's LY19 to SFO due to lack of demand, according to N12

I wonder if LY will ultimately surrender SFO due to COVID19?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

New link to edited page

Reported talks about adding US to the list. If this happens then I'm assuming most flights will get cancelled.

I'm scheduled to fly to EWR in 2 weeks and so far looks like less than 20 seats are occupied in Y

Looks like residents of NY, CA, and WA will be under the 2 week quarantine.  Game over nearing?

המועצה לביטחון לאומי עדכנה את משרד החוץ שבשעות הקרובות משרד הבריאות צפוי להודיע על כך שכל הטסים לישראל מניו יורק, קליפורניה ומדינת וושינגטון יתבקשו להיכנס לבידוד. חובת הבידוד לא תחול על מי שטס בקונקשיין דרך יעדים אלה. כמו כן צפוי המשרד להודיע כי לא תיאסר הטיסה לארצות הברית. השבים מוועידת איפא"ק לא יידרשו להיכנס לבידוד וזאת על אף שאותרו כבר שני חולי קורונה שהשתתפו בוועידה. ממשרד ראש הממשלה נמסר כי "טרם נפלה כל החלטה ובכל מקרה אם וכאשר תתקבל החלטה, היא תצא על ידי משרד הבריאות".
