    Not unless they open the borders to where I want to go
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

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

    ....

    or is flying simply off the table this year?
    That.

    Until C19 is effectively dealt with, if it ever is, I'm not getting on a plane.

    I'm not spending hours wearing a mask on a plane, and until we have an effective and provable vaccine against infection, I'm not spending hours cooped up in a metal tube with an air recycling system.

    So, until Covid is "sorted", if ever, you won't find me on a train, bus, plane and sure as hell not on a cruise ship.
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".

    Do you not take a small canister of chloroform and a mask to deal with the people around you?

    Flying in just over a week. Ironically it's because of Covid-19 that I'm off to Dubrovnik as I said to myself I wouldn't go again because of how busy it is but it will be a lot quieter than usual.

    I have not flown since 1991, and i have no plans for taking that up again.
    At least not this side of a lotto win, cuz thats the only way i will ever get to fly again.

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

    I'm another who hasn't flown in years, and even before the pandemic it was unlikely I would in the next few years either.

    I won't rule out ever flying again, but if I do fly at some point in the future, it certainly wouldn't be likely to be any time soon.

    In about eight hours...

    I have a degree of pity for people who won't fly. The World is quite a large place and worth exploring. Hopefully the restrictions will ease soon.

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

    Yes! Got plans for both Denmark and Switzerland. Life's too short to be sitting indoors waiting for a vaccine that may never come.

    Of course I'll wear a mask, wash hands regularly and keep my distance from others wherever possible.
