U.S. weighs ordering commercial airlines to help in Afghanistan evacuation efforts

The Biden administration has told commercial U.S. airlines that it could order them to help in the Afghanistan evacuation, according to a person familiar with the matter.

U.S. officials informed several of the country's major commercial carriers Friday that it is considering activating the Civil Reserve Air Fleet to help bolster airlift, the person said, adding that the flights wouldn't be from Afghanistan itself but from other locations. That could include flying individuals who are stranded at U.S. bases in Germany, Qatar and Bahrain, according to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news.

The White House and the Defense Department didn't immediately comment to CNBC.

Several U.S. airlines had volunteered earlier in the week to help with the airlift of evacuees, the person told CNBC.

Man Makes Fatal Flunge During Dead & Company Concert In NY

A 46-year-old man died on Friday, after falling from a balcony during a Dead & Company concert at New York’s Citi Field, Deadline can confirm.

A spokesperson for the New York Police Department tells us that the man’s injuries were “consistent with falling from an elevated position.” After first responders arrived on the scene, they transported him in critical condition to New York–Presbyterian Queens Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The NYPD is not yet naming the deceased concert attendee. Their investigation into Friday’s events is ongoing.

Sources tell The New York Daily News that the man died after attempting to do a flip off of the balcony; others in attendance at the concert told the New York Post that they believed he was under the influence of alcohol at the time.

Their concert on Friday at the home of the New York Mets was part of a tour, which kicked off in Raleigh, NC on August 16, and will wrap up in Cancún in January.
