The novel coronavirus has the world a bit freaked out– college classes are being cancelled, as are other large gatherings, such as concerts. The airline industry is being rocked as people cancel travel plans. But American millennials are taking advantage of the low prices of flights.
Many are taking to social media to share the incredible deals they are finding on flights. One person posted a flight that was $49 from San Francisco to Australia, and one Twitter user wrote, “I’d like to thank the Coronavirus for making flights cheap as *you know what*… so that I can sit on a beach…with a corona…you the real mvp.” Others lamented about the fact that while flights got cheap hotel prices stayed high.
