JetBlue has announced it's reducing winter service to Puerto Rico because tourism is down after Hurricane Maria. The airline is still offering price-capped fares with free checked bags for people traveling between Puerto Rico and the mainland U.S. through Nov. 15 — one of a few airlines offering to help with relief efforts on the island.

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti looks at how airlines are assisting relief and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico with Airline Weekly's Seth Kaplan.
