peter - got that information from a newspaper article forwarded to me (by a harris supporter). But yes, origination with fox news is far from unlikely. by going to fox, cnn, and msnbc each day it is possible to get news from three totally unrelated planets in one sitting, all self-serving.

TS - if people won't wear masks, i suspect interest in these vaccines will be lower than adequate to get back to R1 where new york was just a few short months ago. this basically untested vaccine could cause its own set of problems including the delayed complications just now being described six months later including neurologic problems.

You have a point. With so much emphasis on personal freedom in the US (to the detriment of collective good), it might be a struggle to achieve high vaccination rates. I think the rest of the world will happily take these vaccines though. And any Americans wanting to travel internationally might find they have no choice but to vaccinate.

IATA Travelpass and CommonPass, the COVID-19 passport

The future of travel will probably not be tolerant to anti vaxers

I have no idea what this refers to?

refers to recently departed post 23 (per moderator) - a rather blatant violation of site rules for gratuitous self-referral

Oh right. I removed that one without even looking too closely. It had copied my comment, reworded a few things and then dropped a link :)

My daughter is an airline pilot for AA. She reports that some countries (Jamaica for one) require everyone to have a negative Covid test before they are allowed entry. The pilots and crew are not required to have such a test, and AA will keep you at full pay if you get sick (and report it to them although some of the women pilots have reported that the other pilot on their trip was working even though coughing and with a fever).

The actions resulting from the requirement for a negative test apparently are not always logical. The flight crew is not allowed to stay there overnight with no negative test to fly out in the morning. So the plane flies in from Charlotte with two crews - one dead heading and one flying the plane. And then the deadheading crew flies the plane back to the origin. OK that's fine. But they need a plane and crew there in the morning to fly out again. So they have to do the whole operation again - but since the plane going out in the morning is going to Miami instead of to Charlotte, they fly a plane in from Miami and also fly the crew in from Charlotte. (four full crews - one flying from Miami and deadheading back, one flying from Charlotte and deadheading back, one deadheading out and flying back to Charlotte and one deadheading from Charlotte and then flying to Miami. My daughter has been on the phone to crew scheduling they could do this with a lot less people (eliminating the plane from Charlotte and just flying back and forth to Miami), but they refuse to listen.

Also she says that when they get there, the crew are made to come off the plane and go through customs and have their temperatures taken etc before they can get back on the plane and that they have to go through the terminal and past all the passengers that they just flew in before they can go through customs.

She also says she's been in the Emergency Manual a lot more than usual which doesn't give me a lot of confidence.
