Rysn air isn't the only travel partner to try incentives to get people travelling agsin.

I can't believe the low price but i can see why they are offering tickets for such s low price - to get people travelling agsin!
ok..yikes.. i wish them well..i wonder what their ad campaign will be.."don't just stay at home..take the virus with you in your travels"????

I read where they are thinking of permission to use the toilet to keep the Chinese flu ( that is what it is ) from spreading
