As someone who has been on more BA fights than I can count during this pandemic, I’m of the opinion that air travel is pretty safe. They follow the guidelines. I’ve never contracted the virus (I’ve had tests and undergo temperature checks at work daily) and I’ve not been contacted to say anyone on the flight has - which BA are doing.Remember the collective moaning faces of multi millionaires Michael O'Leary and Willie Walsh threatening all sorts, whilst reassuring us all that everything was in place to fly safely.....
"People can pack in next to each other on a flight but in hospital we have to socially distance amongst staff."www.edinburghlive.co.uk
If anything it shows that people can actually sit next to each other, wearing masks for the majority of the time, without any significant outbreaks happening.
