I have just booked for a last minute trip to SA.
My Mom who is getting on a bit and my sister is not well, so I will spend a week spending time with family (no Kruger visit this time :evil: ).

No one is going to "shame me " into not making this trip

I think it is more likely that the aeroplanes will get "cleaner". Maybe for a certain period, there will be some changes within Europe, but for long haul flights I don't see a solution other than the one mentioned at the beginning.
