Coronavirus Information Report

SAN DIEGO, CA - MAY 20: Passengers onboard an American Airlines flight to Charlotte, NC at San Diego International Airport on May 20, 2020 in San Diego, California. Air travel is down as estimated 94 percent due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, causing U.S. airlines to take a major financial hit with losses of $350 million to $400 million a day and nearly half of major carriers airplanes are sitting idle.

A California man was freaked over flying did the only thing he could think of.

A guy is charged with felony criminal trespass after police say he lived inside O’Hare International Airport for three months. Prosecutors say Aditya Singh hid out at the airport because he was scared to fly due to COVID-19. The 36-year-old arrived in Chicago on a flight from Los Angeles on October 19th.

He was living in the airport’s security zone until Saturday when two United Airlines employees asked to see his ID. Singh showed them a badge that actually belonged to an operations manager who had reported it missing a week after Singh had arrived.

Singh survived on food given to him by others.

This whole scenario reminds me of the Tom Hanks film “Terminal”.
