BREAKING: American Airlines responds to Frudy’s request for comment

We reached out to American Airlines (AAL) regarding their decision to revert back to 100% occupancy on their flights despite an outcry against it from the CDC.

Here’s what an American Airlines spokesperson told Frudy exclusively:

“We are unwavering in our commitment to the safety and well-being of our customers and team members. We have multiple layers of protection in place for those who fly with us, including required face coverings, enhanced cleaning procedures, and a pre-flight COVID-19 symptom checklist — and we’re providing additional flexibility for customers to change their travel plans, as well. We know our customers are placing their trust in us to make every aspect of their journey safe, and we are committed to doing just that.”

As for now, the full occupancy of planes will remain in place.
