March will be 80% or more of 2019 levels. We should be back on track by Q4. In the US, domestic travel is already surpassing 2019 levels.

I'm not travelling again until they remove the mask mandates. Even on public transportation I'm fed up with them that I'd rather stay home.

I get that, but I’ll be the first to admit that I caught nasty bugs on quite a few of my of transpacific trips from 2014 to 2019 that I’m almost 100% sure could’ve been prevented if more people wore masks on my flights. I’ll now keep wearing masks long after the mandates are lifted.

J’ai pris l’avion 2 fois cette année déjà. Si tout va bien je devrais le prendre 5+ fois cette année. Ça sera mon record :)

Airplanes have among the best air filtering, you would catch probably your bugs on the way to the plane than on the plane itself.  Having done Hawaii in December, nope nope, it really wasn't enjoyable with a mask on.

Absolutely, the air is filtered and ozonated, but in most modern aircraft, the air is exchanged approximately twice an hour. You’re still sharing air with two or three hundred people in an enclosed tube. If the filter isn’t directly in front of your nose and mouth, you’re sharing all the air with anybody else whose filter isn’t directly in front of their nose and mouth. Wearing a mask won’t reduce the risk to nil, but it definitely lowers the chance of sharing more than just air. A well-fitted mask rated to an N95 standard also reduces the risk of inhaling someone else’s shared… bugs.

Yes, masks are a minor pain in the ass. We all have our own different tolerance to risk. Mine is fairly high, but wearing a mask is such an easy way to lower a risk — like wearing a seatbelt — that I don’t feel it’s a huge encumbrance if it helps me avoid catching something (not just Covid). I remind myself that healthcare workers have been wearing tight N95s (often doubled-up with procedure masks) for more hours every day than the duration of any single flight I’ll be taking.

You might have convinced me with an particle based virus but something like Omicron passes through medical masks so easily, and even N95 masks, that I find it a monumental environmental waste to still have those mandatory.
