Has anyone flown since the lockdowns have started lifting? What's the experience like? I will be doing it for recreational reasons soon and haven't since January.

Bit confused. Why are you flying for fun if you’re concerned/curious about what they’re doing to safeguard against covid?

SFO international airport was only using 2 gates next to each other so hundreds of people were crammed in one section. Not a single food service place or store was open. My domestic flight only had 20-30 people on it, but the one to Asia seemed full (200-300 people)

Yeppp airports are empty flights I was on were like 60% full. Would have felt empty if not for current situation but was still fine with all the middle seats empty

Airports frankly weren’t doing a ton that I saw visibly but it was so empty like people were spread across 3 gates before boarding. On the plane basically no service or very limited service and PAs about cleaning planes etc and handed out wipes / hand sanitizer. I do think the airlines are doing all they can but I think we’re kidding ourselves if we pretend it’s about as high risk a place to be as possible right now

Check out CNBC make it on Instagram. They did an instagram highlight showing what it’s like to fly now with video of drive to airport all the way to landing.

Flew from PHL to DFW this week. Airport was empty considering normal travel days. Everyone required to wear a mask, AA flight attendants all wearing masks/gloves and hand out bags at beginning of flight for refreshments. Wipe down your seat & tray table and you’ll be fine

Have you ever dealt with a colleague that believes in extremely (in my opinion) outdated or even just false claims and treats them as scientific facts? I work with several older men but one of them practices "provocative therapy" as in you just play the devil's advocate with your patient and side with the negative half of their thinking. In theory I could see this working situationally, but as a whole philosophy regardless of the patient's issue I think it's ridiculous.
