Not everyone is staying home during the coronavirus scare, some people are taking advantage to score cheap flights.

NBC spoke to a 20 year old traveler named Ashley Henkel who started booking summer flights once airline prices dropped due to coronavirus concerns. She already has trips to Vancouver, New York, and Portland planned.

Many other young people are following suit. Ashley Henkel says there is "no fun in staying at home and being all worried". Carriers are offering deals that have put air travel within reach for those who usually can't fly. Flight schedules are being scaled down and the airline stocks are plunging.
