Around 100 American Airlines flight attendants and at least 600 Southwest employees tested positive for COVID-19, their respective unions say.
Additionally, a second AA flight attendant has died of the novel coronavirus, sources say. He was a St. Louis-based flight attendant.
That news of the death came hours after the Association of Professional Flight Attendants informed its members that around 100 flight attendants had tested positive for the novel coronavirus as of Saturday.
