re: Would you fly right now?
Sure. Have a few scheduled.

The problem I have is my son's daycare has a mandatory quarantine period after any travel. While we could obviously avoid disclosing it, it may be fairly obvious upon my son's absenteeism. Therefore, all trips have to be scheduled and then we either have relatives who live multiple states away come to watch him upon our return or hope the policy changes (it won't).

Huge PITA. It's this kind of thing that's gonna hold us back just a bit longer than necessary even with therapeutics and vaccines.

I would fly right now

I’m actually thinking of booking a day trip for the whole family so the littles can fly in a plane for the first time. Just trying to figure out where to go ...

Flew ATL to Seattle 7/4-7/11.
Flying the way it should be. Airports were relative ghost towns, no one in middle seat. Flight out was relatively full but only 60% on way back. Long term parking cost less than normal . Going to Montana next month without hesitation.

re: Would you fly right now?
Yes. Wife and kids flew to Orlando on southwest a month ago. Southwest was leaving middle seat open unless it was a family unit flying together. We all flew to Denver on Friday on Frontier. Temperature checks and required masks at all times. Hated the mask part but if it makes everyone feel safe so be it. Plane was full. Sitting at O'hare right now waiting on my Spirit flight to N.O. Spirit not doing temp checks but requiring masks. Flight from Denver to O'hare was full. Flight to N.O. is full also.

Yes. Flew to seattle on the 10th and spent a week visiting national parks and orcas island.

why


Bc the virus is mostly political bull shite so I wanted to take advantage of the lower fares and less crowded plane.

Already have twice. Grow a pair. It’s certainly a concern but has been blown way out of proportion.

re: Would you fly right now?
I'm cranking up the flight machine next week. We shut flights down for travel mid March. Essential, close a deal trip to the West Coast in June was my only flight until next week. S Florida next week, Memphis/Nashville week after, Utah week after, then back to S Florida to finish this run out.

My wife thinks it's not a good idea. The marketplace needs my presence.

Flying doesn't concern me at all. Neither does the Chinese virus.

No masks. No shutdown. Live life.

First flight was On Delta from ATL to GSO on May 5. Have been flying almost every week since. It’s awesome. No fat slobs in the middle seat. At first flights were empty but now they are starting to fill up. Gonna look back with fondness to how it was during this time.

re: Would you fly right now?
Flew Dallas to Vegas a few weeks ago for a trip out to Utah National Parks.

Just booked a Cancun trip for Labor Day weekend.

So I guess to answer your question...yes.

7 Flights in past few weeks and another 4 in the next two weeks.

It’s great, aside from TSA Pre Checks being closed.

Only irrational people are scared of flying right now.

Ah frick. Do you still get recognized as precheck through security even if in regular security line like they did pre-COVID when this would happen?

I dress much better and pack a lot differently than I did many years ago since I'm precheck.

Has gotten me a couple times when I'm coming home via Europe or something. The US really forces those countries to do serious screening we gave up years ago on

re: Would you fly right now?
I'm really jealous of all of you able to travel! I've been grounded since March, and don't see any opportunity for me to travel until early next year at the earliest. They currently require a 14 day quarantine when arriving no matter where you fly from. Even if I could quarantine at home, that would require all family members to also quarantine - which would suck for the family.
So I'm not traveling until quarantine requirements are lifted.

Yea, it’s only some airports...

But you have to take a laptop/iPad/etc... of which is a pain deeding on how you’ve packed it. You won’t know til you show up at the airport. No way to tell in advance.

Then of course, you’re with a group that can’t figure out what to do.
