Actually I am *glad* to see this. It means people have
finally caught on that being trapped in an aluminum
tube with sick people is a very very BAD idea for the
time being. It also means far fewer are traveling to
other countries - spreading or being spread-to.

It will all get better again in a few months. I think the
big carriers can afford to go into suspended animation
for that long - they may get some compensation from
the federals too. Tiny airlines are just GONE however
and will have to re-start from scratch. There will be
plenty of cheap jetliners, so it may be easier than
trying to start from scratch last year.
