Perhaps the pandemic (and governmental responses to it) exacerbated mental health issues to a far greater extent than predicted.
We traveled by plane to Washington last winter, and the mask mandate was only very loosely enforced. The airline itself didn't seem to mind at all, actually, considering the fact that they packed passengers in like sardines. Instead of spacing people out, they filled the seating at the back half of the plane and left the entire front half empty.
I want to speak to the fucking pilot, now!!
The seats used to be wide, have wide arm chairs, were very soft & squishy and comfortable, and there weren't that many passengers. Two passengers per row, two rows. Now they've got 2 aisles but 3, 4 or 5 seats packed together. Good luck crawling across those laps to get to the bathroom.
