First business travel since March starts on Tuesday... any recommendations on the whole airport and flight experience? Mask and sanitiser of course, but anything else to remember?

I’ve just used the last bit from the last can of Emirates amenity kit shaving foam. After almost 2 years, I will now need to actually buy shaving foam... 😔 How sad is that 🤪

Flew on United from O’Hare to DC and it was a full flight. What happened to seat distancing? I had a mask and a plastic face shield on. Is it too soon to see full flights?

I was just informed in the Denver sky club that they don’t leave the to-go coffee cups out ‘because of the alcohol’. Damn it, when did they catch on?

I’m desperate to get out of town. Can’t really do Road trips bc I can’t drive for long periods due to injury. Where can I fly to that’s relatively safe and I’m not putting anyone at risk?

Anyone forget what it was like to go through TSA after 5 months of no flights? Even in pre-check last week, I was like “wait, what do I do with my shoes and laptop?”
