    Yeah I will, I got stuck in Finland for 4 and a half months longer than intended due to the first wave, but it's a safe country and has someone very important to me in it.

    Only made it back to the UK two weeks ago but I certainly hope I'll be there again soon.

    I don't think so, it's not the thing to throw money away.

    Too much to see in the UK and there are some stunning places. It has caused me to look at the UK differently. No need to fly anywhere.

    No. I don't want to chance catching it and then spreading it myself.

    Re: QOTW: Do you plan to fly again this year?

    Having recently changed jobs, I will have to at some point in the future for work (to India and to the US).

    Do I want to go? No

    Will I put it off for as long as possible? absolutely

    Realistically is travel going to be available for me short to medium term? very unlikely

    Not planning to this year, or the near future either, but wasn't planning on it anyway.

    Thankfully got my last trip done in January, which will do for a while.

    Re: QOTW: Do you plan to fly again this year?

    Although my job covers all of western Europe, Ghana and Seychelles (the last two I've yet to visit), my companies policy precludes me travelling. They've been REALLY sensible about things and are taking a very cautious approach to returning to work, which as a food producer, is great.
    I just hope I can continue working from home more.

    Re: QOTW: Do you plan to fly again this year?

    No chance. I rarely fly at the best of times, as holidays don't interest me. And right now, being on a packed airliner is about as appealing as being on a cruise ship, i.e. not very appealing at all.

    Would have holidayed abroad, but that seems a silly idea right now so quickly booked up some stuff in the uk before it all sold out. It's just not worth fancy holidays right now - either our government or the government of the place your are visiting could decide to quarantine. Most the places you would want to visit are at least partially closed and/or have severely restricted visitor numbers and/or require a lot of uncomfortable mask wearing. In addition it just takes you or someone you know to get a cough or a fever and the whole lot of you have to quarantine and miss the holiday.

    Plenty of places to explore in the UK

    Your not fair,

    You are a pilot so can isolate yourself and fly wherever you want!!
