Social Distancing In Planes
As social distancing measures need to be implemented due to the 2020 pandemic and its causes, airlines are examining how this will be impacting flying, once the travel restrictions are eased.
Eliminating The Middle Seat
Current guidelines make a good case of eliminating the not-so-favorite middle seat. It was always the least favorite, with no real benefits, unless you’re one of those people who strikes up conversations with their seatmates.
This elimination may be required in the short-term. Airlines are checking on how feasible it is, and whether they can be profitable by flying with a lesser load of passengers, who are slightly farther from each other, but not as much as the distance recommended by WHO, which is two meters (or 6 feet).

Always In The Air
Due to space constraints, most airplanes, especially the large ones, were kept in the air almost all the time, only to land for getting the passengers (and cargo) in or out, refueling and cleaning.
Planes are supposed to operate efficiently and with greater reliability if they are used frequently, and not when they are parked.

Decide if you should face your fear
Evaluate Risk Level
Just because something feels scary, doesn’t mean it’s actually risky. Educate yourself about the facts and the risks you actually face by doing the things that scare you.
Create an Action Plan
The key to facing your fears is to take one small step at a time. Going too fast or doing something too scary before you are ready can backfire.
Keep moving forward. A moderate amount of anxiety is good. Don’t wait to take a step forward until your anxiety disappears.
If you can’t actually do the thing that scares you to practice, you might use imagined exposure.
