American Airlines is following in the footsteps of the JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines as the airline announced they’ll be waiving change fees on all purchased tickets from between March 1 and March 16 due to the Coronavirus. This applies to their entire network of flights including domestic flights within the United States.
I expect that we will see Delta Air Lines and United Airlines make similar announcements this week as well.
