Would you fly right now?
Domestically? Internationally?

Why or why not?

Just did and it was one of the more enjoyable flying experiences I’ve had. We connected from Mobile through Atlanta and the Atlanta airport was a ghost town relative to normal.

Went to Mexico a few weeks ago. It was great. Flight was not full and lines were not long.

No. I don't enjoy the experience in ordinary times, so I will avoid it now as well.

I also would not want to get far away from home, especially another country, and then get sick/hospitalized or barred from flying home.

That said, I flew to and from Europe less than 30 days after 9/11, and the lack of fellow travelers on board made it sweet.

Just flew SWA from DAL to LAS two weeks ago. Smooth sailing each way. Only 62 ppl on flight back.

I flew July 3rd. Will again 1-2 times before October. It’s no big deal. TSA lines are much shorter, which I appreciate.

Flying out east in less than two weeks. Honestly, I didn’t give it much second thought. It’s a long drive and the flight is less than two hours.

I few from MSY to Chicago on Saturday for a daytrip (it was $35 on Spirit, so why not?). I flew from BTR to Los Cabos earlier this month.

All the evidence indicates that airplanes are very safe, because they consistently recirculate and filter all the air inside the plane. In all of the history of COVID, there's still only one person who's been confirmed to have been infected on a plane.

Flew Lafayette > Atlanta > Sarasota roundtrip this weekend. Airports are quiet. Flew delta and never had anyone sit next to me on the plane. They give you a wipe to sanitize your area upon boarding the plane. There is hand sanitizer stations everywhere. Honestly, was a great experience.

As long as I am not sitting directly next to a random person I have no issue flying right now.

I have not seen any news of outbreak clusters linked back to actually being on a plane.

Flew to Mexico last week. Only issues I had were lounges and restaurants being closed in the airport and them not doing drink service on the plane. Other than that, no issues at all.

ETA: some is the restaurants and lounges. Not all.

Flew from MSY to DC earlier this month, roundtrip. My wife is the only person who sat next to me. No problems at all, the flight was only about 25% full.

re: Would you fly right now?
My wife (no pics) is supposed to fly to SLC on August 17 for an audit. I was going to go with her as my 50th birthday is that week and we were planning to spend a few days after the audit exploring Zion and other NPs in the area.

Now, her company has likely killed that plan in that she is not expecting to be physically present for the audit and will participate remotely. She just had an audit in St Martinville, LA 2 weeks ago and the company made her drive 10 hours rather than fly.

I'm kinda disappointed since I've never been to the part of the country and wanted to see Utah.
