Please read Flight Surgeon’s post. You’re irrational. If you’re so frightened, don’t fly.

A "flight surgeon" does not have any particular expertise, unless I needed my appendix removed while on an airplane. But tell me his uninformed opinion, anyway

It is clear that refusing to have a vaccination for COVID (in contrast to all of the other vaccinations you are required to have) is an antisocial action, and adds to the risk of everyone. Your action provides another possibility for the spread and mutation of this disease, increasing its threat to all of us.   For that reason I will be looking for airlines that have a policy that only allows vaccinated passenger. If the airline suffers passenger loss, I will be willing to pay a higher fare to cover that loss.  I do not want you next to me on my next flight. Stay home where you belong. 


If you're worried that your vaccinated self will HAPPEN to sit next to someone who HAPPENS to have the virus, and it HAPPENS to be a mutation,  and it HAPPENS to be not affected by your vaccination,  and you HAPPEN to get it. and it HAPPENS to cause you serious illness...I think YOU'RE the one who needs to stay home.   Your understanding of statistics tells me you should be too afraid to fly.   After all,  your odds of dying in a plane crash are much higher than the above stated risk. 

 

And by your logic,  the guy next to you who's vaccinated might have just caught that mutation anyways, right?   So you're gonna die anyways. 

 

Keep your illogical hypochondria to yourself,  please.   The rest of us have lives to live.

Those that drink the Covid hysteria kool-aid should be the ones to stay at home.

Make sure you have three masks on before you hide under the bed.

Stay home where you belong with your extreme paranoia and desire to infringe upon the rights of other Americans!

I have not heard that!  But, I think it is an amazing idea....more people would be motivated to get vaccinated if it was a requirement to fly.  Wahoo!  I can't wait!

I'm with those that support the vaccine requirement...I've said it several times on here and will keep doing so.  Can't wait until Hawaii does it so I can book.

I'm really confused.   You can book Hawaii today.   I'm going on Memorial Day.  

 

If you can't wait to book Hawaii, then why are you waiting? 

 

If you haven't gotten the vaccine,  why haven't you? 

 

If you have gotten the vaccine,  what are you afraid of?   

 

In case you forgot,  EVERYONE on the plane has taken a Covid test within 72 hours.   You seem to be fine flying elsewhere,  so I'm curious to why you are MORE concerned about flying in a plane with tested people.

This was a extremely amusing thread. I've enjoyed reading the reactions and getting an idea of how people think. 

 

I'm not getting vaccinated because I don't trust a fast tracked new tech concoction, and I'm sure not allowing anyone to put it in my body. The facts are that we don't know what sort of long term side effects they may cause. Everyone right now is taking part in a huge global clinical trial. If it was a standard killed or modified live vaccine, I would be more willing to be a guinea pig, but not with this. 

 

I don't expect vaccination to ever be a requirement to fly. I've never been asked for my shot records before and with HIPAA I don't believe I ever will, but should that occur I'll just drive. I love flying, but the open road can be a nice change.

@Sekhmet121   Thank you for your thoughts.  I'm proud to be a part of the global clinical study that has no proved to have worked, that you're benefitting from as well, although refuse to contribute, but your choice.  I'm all for vaccine passports, bring them on.  I'll wave at you driving in your car 30,000 feet below and by statistics, are more likely to be in a crash than I am.  But I wish that on nobody.  And honestly, your sights will be much more rewarding on the ground than mine.
