    Ah... You may not be aware then...

    Will British Airways extend your status due to coronavirus?

    Corona already impacting my business

    Anthony Constantinou says “Its true among all of the severe outbreak of coronavirus, odd effects on people and the economy, the work impact has been the most visible and drastic. Businesses have been messing up to reform adjustments they can make for keeping workers safe, contain the spread of virus and continue working.”

    Working and billing 7 days a week for the foreseeable future. It's a bit Berlin April 1945 TBH.

    Corona impacted my business on Monday morning. Felt like tulip all day. Too old for midday drinking before a work day now

    The last flights I did, the booking agent forgot to switch to the codeshare, and booked me on the metal. No tier points, and only a couple of hundred avois.

    WTAF?
    I have news for you. There's hardly any business which is not impacted by Coronavirus. And it will get worse before it gets better
