Took a flight from lga to Denver on Saturday. Here is my experience .Hi, the in-laws (mid 80s) are in San Diego & both want to come to East Coast (Boston airport) to visit us in New Hampshire & ride out Covid-19 with us, but they are afraid to get on regular airplane to travel. They don't want to catch Covid-19. I think planes filter the air, but it is the waiting in lines at the airport, getting onto & off the planes, etc that has most possibility of people/disease contact for them.
Is some kind of charter/private air flight an option? I don't know anything about that- has anyone ever travelled that way across country? What would approximate cost be for round trip (return flight several months apart)? Do you avoid the lines at check-in and security somehow? My in-laws are not poor, but if this costs $20,000 (wild guess) each round trip, they might have to ride out Covid in San Diego.
LaGuardia was terrific, social distance, plenty of space and it was my first time flying there after the return and beautiful.
The flight, southwest is fine. They say they have great filtration and I wore a N95. If they don’t have that. Some people had face shields and surgical masks.
Denver? It was weird to be honest. Too many people, too casual. That was white knuckle getting my bag. I would think that CT and or Boston would have a higher degree if distancing and compliance.
