Delta Air Lines needs to hit the pause button due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Those words came from Delta’s CEO in a memo to employees on Wednesday.
Delta is now making even further cutbacks in service, cutting flights by 70 percent.
The airline is parking half of its fleet, more than 600 planes, and executives are taking pay cuts.
The CEO says roughly ten thousand employees have offered to take voluntary leaves of absence.
The company is also closing the majority of its sky clubs for business travelers.
There was no mention of layoffs, but the memo did not rule out the possibility.
Delta’s CEO says discussions with the White House about a relief package have been constructive.
