Last Wednesday, 17 people were killed Wednesday by a 19-year-old gunman.

“This week’s events are felt by all of our 21,000 crewmembers, many of whom live in, work from and travel through the Broward County area,” airline officials said in a statement. “We want to do our part to help the community and support South Florida through this difficult time.”
