Photo shows packed United Airlines flight
White House: Democrats stimulus package push, Fauci to testify

A doctor is making news for picture on Twitter showing a crowded United Airlines flight.
On Saturday Dr. Ethan Weiss had a six hour flight from New York to San Francisco and shared this photo of the nearly full flight.
That’s noteworthy because United Airlines recently said it would implement social distancing policies on flights and would try keep middle seats empty.
He wrote in his post that he was part of a group of 25 nurses and doctors who have been working in New York hospitals in recent weeks.
A United spokesperson wouldn’t say how many people were on the flight but noted it had a “higher than average load factor but it still departed with empty seats.”
She added that most United flights are operating at less than half capacity.
