Flying during the COVID-19 pandemic is an 'eerie' experience where everyone feels 'on edge,' according to two travel bloggers who boarded planes in recent months.

Airlines everywhere have been forced to impose new protocols at airports and on flights, including physical distancing, meaning fewer tickets are sold and profits have nosedived. On Monday, the U.S. Department of Transportation said Air Canada has received more customerIt was Monday around 8 a.m., but Zhang estimates they saw no more than 30 other travellers that morning.

It’s taken some time for airlines to adapt to the pandemic. In April, when travel blogger Alina McLeod flew fromto stay with her parents before flying home to Toronto, masks weren’t mandated yet. Since there were so few people, McLeod decided against wearing one. She was given a Lysol wipe and a water bottle on the small WestJet plane, which had about 10 passengers. She says about half of them were not wearing face coverings.

“I think everybody was surprised how full the flight was. At that time, people were still a little bit more on edge,” she said. “But I felt like they had much more knowledge about how they were going to do everything [than the first time I flew].”

If you are worried, the Don’t Fly, or if you are like the bulk of society who want to live, go for it!

Planes spread desease!
