Before you jump completely to conclusions, it really doesn't look all that different to the picture a month previous. This is the transatlantic situation at 22:00 on the 14th of Feb. Things will change tomorrow, but transatlantic flights depart in regular waves, it's always quiet at this time.

Exactly. Peak NAT traffic is roughly 0300-0600 and 1100-1400 utc.

President Trump just said it has been looked at and that the UK and Ireland ban will be announced soon.

So, in 30 days time, the rest of the world should ban everything American, no flights, no goods, no people.

This is indeed arguably worse than 9/11. I cannot imagine the conversations at British Airways, Ryanair, Aer Lingus senior management right now.

I think there may be other interesting conversations going on at Heathrow just now. There has been an influx of Chinese biz jets into Heathrow over the last few days. I wonder if the conversations might be along the lines of:
"Aah, about your airline."
Yes.
"Give you hundred quid for it!"

While it sounds like a kneejerk reaction, seeing the US is some time behind Europe, chances are that when the virus is going away in Europe, the number of infections in the US will be still increasing.

It might be wise to isolate the US to prevemt a secondary infections back in Europe (also goes for Asia).
