I had no choice but to fly.

I asked if they had upgraded the air purifications system before bringing passengers onboard.

When I took my new job, I knew well that I had to travel. I had a new car that was given to me by my company. I thought the reason for this was because I would need to drive to my many business meetings. I found out that, yes; I was going to need to drive, but I was also going to need to fly. It’s kind of hard to get to some of my business meetings, since you couldn’t drive over large bodies of water. To be honest, flying petrifies me. Every time I have been in an airplane, the air quality has been terrible. Those little air vents they have over the seats, don’t give enough air to even be felt. It is too hot or too cold, and if it is too cold, inevitably the stewards run out of blankets before I can get one. When I got my new job, the pandemic was just starting. I didn’t want to need to fly if I had to worry about having someone cough, sneeze, or even talk to me. It didn’t matter how I felt about this; I had a job to do. I bought a pack of medical grade masks, grabbed four bottles of hand sanitizer, and headed to the airport. I asked if they had upgraded the air purifications system before bringing passengers onboard. I wanted to know if the air quality was pure and clean. I asked about sanitizing the airplane and the airport? They told me they did all of this, but I would not believe them. Until I got in the plane and experienced the air quality for myself, I wasn’t going to feel safe.
