I agree. I keep reading, “the middle seats were empty for social distancing”. No, thank you! That that is not 6 feet!With the possible exception of travelling in First Class in non-pandemic times, the least enjoyable part of any trip is the hassle of flying. Neither the long baggage and security lines, nor the cramped quarters in economy these days, make flying anything other than a necessary evil, IMO.
So my answer, even apart from the added exposure risk to Covid-19, is an emphatic "NO"!!
In the upper Midwest during the winter, they can be under constant cloud cover for weeks on end. There have times where I have seen "flights to nowhere" offered out of Minneapolis or Fargo just for the purpose of seeing the sun! And they usually sell out fast. So add that to your list of reasons.You either just have to love flying, which I don’t, or need the miles, as someone mentioned above.
I can't bring myself to add Australia to my bucket list because I can't handle the idea of a ONE-way flight.I have a friend who once booked a r/t turnaround flight to Australia and back. The flight was cheap and gave him the miles boost he needed to keep his top elite status for the next year.
