I do not think this is a good move at this time..understandably,aa is losing money,as are the other carriers,but the covid 19 virus is still spreading,and there are a lot of asymptomatic people around..if aa wants to fill every seat, then they MUST assure passengers they will continue with the thorough cleaning and disinfecting of every airplane,every seat,and still use masks and take temperatures..this is whats called in casinos, a "crap shoot"...
