SOCIAL distancing on flights has been a tough debate between public health officials and airlines as travel companies insist that flights must be occupied in order for the sector to survive.
For this reason, there is a constant protest from individuals embarking on flights about the lack of space or increased risk of transmission in the aircraft.
One passenger on the Air France flight, who travelled from Paris to Madrid, assured that the “plane was full to the brim, no social distancing or anything. This is embarrassing, we are all packed in like a can of sardines… not even one free space!” they recalled.
Although keeping seats free is not a requirement for airlines, wearing a mask when onboard certainly is. Passengers are increasingly angry about these conditions and demand that social distancing is enforced more rigorously on flights, however, less occupied seats will mean that prices will have to come up.
