Under what circumstances would you all feel safe traveling by air two weeks from now?

I have so much air travel booked over the next two months, I am intending to complete all of it.

Unless the system is closed down and I am prevented from doing so.

I have;
Canberra, Rockhampton, Melbourne, Sydney, Johannesburg, Victoria Falls, Durban, Singapore, Athens and Istanbul, between now and July.

Okay, I'll clarify. Air travel, in the US, to & from Florida. Swine flu.

OK, I was thinking about the US in September but am currently reserving my decision on that.

If the flu is going to get you, it will. I see no need to particularly curtail activities.

Now if flight travel gets shut down...

Carry a pet pot belly pig aboard any flight and you'll be ok. The brightest and smartest people have always done such.

Sam's Club has N95 masks for $11 / 20pk. eBay sees them fetching beween $2 and $8 apiece.

Wonder how many I can buy on credit.
