How was it? Did you feel safe, even with someone sitting next to you on the plane, since they're now booking all seats? How did you handle the experience? I'd love to hear your impressions.
Have your parents been able to get vaccinated? My mom has had the first shot.Thanks for your responses. I've been considering visiting my elderly parents in Florida, but the whole flying thing has me really spooked. I flew in October before cases went up and the new more transmissible variants emerged, and the airlines were still blocking middle seats (BTW, JetBlue no longer does). So I'm trying to decide whether or not to go. The whole thing would be a lot easier to decide if I'd received the vaccine; unfortunately, that's not going to happen for a while.

Understood. Just glad they’ve been able to get theirs.Yes. They had their second shot this past week. My dad is almost 98 and my mom is 91.
My main fear is being seated next to someone on the plane. I can avoid people pretty well in the airport; it's being in close proximity to others on the plane that worries me.
But If you are uncomfortable with flying, what about a good old-fashioned road trip? If you can drive, there is something to be said for not stuffing yourself in a tin can where you are relying 100+ other strangers to follow the rules.
