CHICAGO (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines pilots' union said on Saturday it had reached an agreement with management over coronavirus-related sick leave and managing overstaffing in April with partially paid schedules.

Delta has said it will cut its April flying schedule by 40% to reflect a drop in travel demand and growing travel restrictions due to the spreading coronavirus.
