UA was also the first of the majors to go all revenue based, with no mileage requirement, no CC waiver, etc. You put in a dollar, you get a PQP, and that’s all that matters.

Sounds like a deadhead.

In theory the FA should have self-identified as sick in AUS, and gotten a hotel and taken herself off the flight. But in fairness to her, I can understand why she didn’t....

This was a milage run? You flew [SFO/SAN/SJC/SEA]->AUS->SJC? Not judging; you should still report it, but trying to figure out where you'd be coming from with a connection in Austin. :)

You're probably right, but I hope that's not true. The virus isn't going to care if the person is an employee or not.

For those of you that have flown, have you seen anybody wearing gear like this yet? I kind of want to, even though I probably don’t need to. Would make a good story.

Not to take us too far off topic, but is this really true? I'm not flying right now, but I randomly check seatmaps for flights I'm not on ( yeah yeah ), and they still mostly seem pretty full to me.
