Although the services won’t disappear completely, the need to be scaled down significantly. These changes would include reassessing the way food items are handled and delivered to passengers onboard.

Many experts consider it quite confusing to know how banning alcohol on flights can stop the spread of the virus. However, several agencies clarified that this will create no chances of people getting intoxicated and yelling or misbehaving while on-board.

This is certainly a good reason for monitoring and cutting down the passengers’ alcohol intake. Others think that this is one of the economically driven decisions made by the airlines since serving soft drinks is far more affordable than serving a beer.

4. No Navigation Touch Screens

Touch screens are going to get away for a while now, at least until things get better. They may be gone for long from the domestic flights but international flights would certainly have them. There are experts who consider that this isn’t a change to be made for a shorter crisis.

Well, in any of the cases, the touchscreen cleanliness remains a major concern. Moreover, everything that needs to be cleaned cannot be left entirely on the airline. Passenger will have to be concerned equally.

5. You Cannot Board Whenever You Wish

Air travel post-COVID-19 may have you to deal with some drastic changes with the check-in times and boarding. Generally, airports had been places where people amass through crowded funnels, checking points to complete all formalities to be on the flight.

However, reducing crowds is the ultimate need of the time to keep a check on public health. You could come across pre-security areas at the airport in the future. While it’s still not known when it will be actually safe to travel, the changes are still behind the curtains.

6. No Magazines On Flights
