    What would it take?

    If anything, to make you feel comfortable flying? Rob

    Bigger seats? more legroom? A glass of white wine? Maybe a valium.

    But if I was inclined to fly anyway a vaccine or an effective treatment.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    A Valium washed down with a glass of wine). Probably a effective vaccine.

    For the short term, not filling middle seats, and requiring masks for passengers and crew. Once things settle down and under control, let's say sometime early to mid-2021, as long as there were no significant outbreaks, I wouldn't mind flying on a crowded plane. I love flying.

    If I HAD to fly tomorrow, I'm sure I could get a whole row on both sides of the aisle to myself, so it wouldn't bother me. I'd have gotten the glass of wine anyway

    2 to 3 seater, preferably open cockpit, with my brother as pilot, lol. But a vaccine would also be a plus.

    The last time I got sick with a nasty cold was shortly after a flight. The person behind was coughing incessantly, and I was the lucky recipient of the "spray".

    Not anytime soon! Yes, a double layer cloth homemade mask would have prevented the spray from going over the seat and all over me. Think I'm wrong? Put one off and cough cough cough. Take the mask off and check for fluid on the inside vs the outside.

    I'm done with flying unless the virus is wiped out 100%. You are packed like rats on a plane. I'm old with bad lungs so don't need to press my luck.

    If I need to travel in the USA I'll do it via my little camper and urban boondock away from others. Many times I've been sick after a flight, breathing all the recycled germs. Now it can be deadly.

    I won't be flying commercially until things are more settled down.

    I'd like to see:

    - effective covid screening
    - effective covid treatment
    - the next wave or two to pass so people learn how to behave
    - ideally a vaccine
    - border controls relaxed - most of the places I need to fly are in Europe, and that's not really happening now

    I'm perfectly comfortable flying with full PPE on, I'd just prefer not to, and want to make sure wherever I am travelling to is actually up-and-running, and that I'll be allowed in/out.

    I can't think of anything that would make flying "comfortable." Even if I were fully vaccinated, flying is anything but comfortable. Maybe with door-to-door concierge delivery to the airport and a first-class seat. Or a private plane.
