A passenger who boarded a JetBlue flight while waiting for his coronavirus diagnosis has been banned from the airline for life.

The passenger flew from New York to West Palm Beach on Wednesday March 11th. He found out his positive test results during the flight. He then told the flight crew about it after they landed.

The airline said, "[The] event put our crewmembers, customers, and federal and local officials in an unsettling situation that could have easily been avoided, and as such, this customer will not be permitted to fly on JetBlue in the future."
