So...airline travel so far. UA has sent emails the second one being to pre order snack food and beverage selections. This is new to me. Apparently this is to make for a fully contactless experience, a phrase that is now used throughout all their preflight emails. I have rarely flown UA in the past having dumped them for overbooking their flights--which they still do--but they had the direct flight I wanted.

Masks required in the airport and in flight.
No proof of Covid vaccine required.

What I expected. I'm bringing my vax card anyway.

Also packing Covid tests. 8-)

I have returned from my trip. Disregard most of the above rules from UA. Masks were not required in the airports or on the plane. Contactless food experience was not required.

Briefly...I wore a mask in both airports and on the flights. Felt anxious going through TSA in DEN since it was my first time out-out. Got over it. I went maskless the entire time I was in Florida. I didn't eat anywhere inside a restaurant. We started to go into a restaurant and the wait was too long. When I got inside I felt uneasy about the crowd anyway (didn't have a mask with me) so blessing in disguise with regard to Covid. Most folks in the airports, in flight, and in the community were unmasked though I saw several who were in all three situations even outdoors. Most of my time was spent outdoors or in the outdoor air...screened area.

Not much else to say at the moment. I'm unfit for interaction while adjusting back to high altitude. Currently tearing up over the Zelensky, Austin, Blinken meeting. :cry:

It is what it is. I shall soon rise. 8-)

Glad you got to go on your trip and have apparently escaped unscathed. Welcome back!

I guess because I was oxygen deprived. Now I’m in the hospital so no worries.

No, I asked to be tested and came back negative. I went in to get electrical cardioverted they kept me for observation overnight, and during that time they discovered that I had a mild case of bronchitis. Now on short term course of steroids...I don't do well on those. Had to delete and then rewrite this post because the first version was crazy...did I mention I don't do well on steroids? ;)
