  1. Love your posts Gary. I won’t fly with a mask. No big. 2,000,000. Miles on Delta. I’ll wait it out. 90% of my retired friends share my sentiment. Their loss…not ours.

  2. Also in today’s news, there’s a WaPo article about 4 confirmed infections on a flight from Dubai to New Zealand that occurred in September. Masking was required, but on a 14 hour flight… there would have been a meal involved. Confirmed that the infections were transmitted in flight.

    May want to file that in the “maybe flight isn’t the safest thing during Covid” folder.

  3. So is the the DOT disability regulation final rule still not clear as to how many service animals may travel with a passenger with a disability?. Being stuck at home during the pandemic, I have taken up vermiculture to be “green” and get rid of a ton of cardboard boxes from Amazon. My 10,000 Asian jumping worms are now providing emotional support. and I just cannot imagine flying without them. In a giant clear plastic Ziplock bag under the seat in front of me, of course. Oops, the bag must have come unzipped during the flight. Excuse me, but have you flight attendants seen 10,000 8 inch jumping worms loose in the cabin?
