I have a question....
Are we still talking about the virus that has a 99%+ survival rate?

Would you get on an airline with a 99% survival rate?

How does one calculate the survival rate of an airline? I donít see how thatís relevant to the virus and its 99% survival rate. Pretty silly question.

the one that carriers can carry it without knowing, spread it without knowing, it kills the elderly, has 140k deaths and 3.7M cases total in USA alone, all in about 6 months, and resulted in world leaders to include POTUS to shut down the economies.

that one

the same folks that say 99% survival rate would never pilot an airplane that has a known issue, yet unresolved, with occasional stuck controls, resulting in a loss of control crash and death, but it is so rare that 99% of the time you will be OK.

just go fly it

99% survival rate

. More like best case Market driven economy shapes airline size, worst case is freebies like CARES which are damaging to the long term economic viability. Skip to 44:00 min. and listen to the economic experts. CARES is just blowing into a balloon with a massive hole in it, eventually you canít keep up with the rupture. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OK2zgeJLVwU

I am with you but I am subject to change my opinion when I get new information. Just like on the flight deck. I may revise my route if new information arrives.

My opinion on COVID is that indeed it is real, and poses a threat. There is too much we don't know.

my opinion. Have a good night
