I flew on 7 flights with the largest US airlines in June. Here's what surprised me the most about flying during the pandemic.




The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way I travel with a new focus on safety altering how I approach flying.




After taking seven flights in June, however, I was the most surprised by the lack of changes coming from some airlines and airports, despite COVID-19 cases rising across the country.




I found that the busiest airports and the largest airlines are doing the least when they should be doing the most.

A lifetime of flying couldn't prepare me for the coronavirus pandemic and how it would change the way we take to the skies.
In June, I flew on the country's top four largest airlines with flights on American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and Southwest Airlines. With the greatest number of aircraft and routes, these airlines are industry leaders and brought in billions of dollars in yearly revenue before the pandemic saw them lose millions each day.
Before the pandemic, flying for me was as easy as riding a bike as I had gotten to know the airline industry inside and out after taking countless flights. I would often book the cheapest flight on any airline, arrive at the terminal just a few minutes before boarding, and breeze through the airport like George Clooney's character in "Up in the Air," still making it to the gate before my row was called.
