As part of an announcement that it was adding Vanderbilt University Medical Center to its travel health advisory panel, American Airlines said it would book flights  “to capacity” starting July 1.

The notice came under the heading,  “Notifications to customers booked on more crowded flights.”

Airlines began to block seats to allow for greater social distancing as the coronavirus began to spread this spring.

“As more people continue to travel, customers may notice that flights are booked to capacity starting July 1,” the airline said.

The change in policy puts the world’s largest airline in line with United and Spirit airlines.

“Our customers trust us to make every aspect of their journey safe. We won’t let them down,” said Alison Taylor, the airline’s chief customer officer. “We will continue to refine and update our practices based on the latest information from health authorities and our own Travel Health Advisory Panel.”
