I'm pretty sure this requirement will not go over well with all that, for one reason or another, are opting not to get vaccinated against COVID.  Can't help but think that this requirement will spread to the cruise ship industry, too.

The other night on NBC News Lester Holt interviewed the CEO of Delta Airlines, Ed Bastian about the possibility of vaccine passports in the future and he said "I don't see that happening in the U.S., but I think internationally that's going to be a requirement."

I'm not a big international traveler, so I'm not really all that worried about it. If fact, I'd probably go ahead and get the vaccine passport just to have it in case.  You never know if maybe all of a sudden maybe some U.S. states may require it to enter their state.

Probably won't happen, but if we as a country continue to have surges of the coronavirus, who knows?  I mean, if you were a state that had all but eliminated the spread of the virus, would you want people flying in from a state that had a large number of cases?  Probably not.

Bastian, Delta's CEO, also told Lester Holt that Delta will continue to block the middle seat on it's planes until the end of April. But went on to explain "We're going to sell it once people continue to gain confidence in travel, we'll have no choice but to sell and give them the opportunity to sit in the middle seat."

I'm not sure who considers sitting in the middle seat, on an airplane, an "opportunity".  But each to their own, I guess.

Would you get vaccinated if it was required to fly internationally or domestic?
