An American Airlines pilot based in DFW has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a report from the New York Post, American Airlines spokesman Curtis Blessing has confirmed the positive test and has stated that the company is in close contact with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The airline states that risk of transmission to passengers is low.

This news follows the reports of two TSA officers in San Diego also testing positive for COVID-19.

If you've been watching flights lately, then you've seen a dramatic reduction in prices. I just recently booked a flight to Denver, Colorado in April for $42, round trip! It's an unbelievable deal and I could not pass it, COVID-19 or not.

Currently it's a running joke on the web about the risks that the millennial generation are willing to take to travel cheaply.
