United Airlines Complaint - Healthy Flying
My wife and I have been flying around the world on United for over 20 years. Without exception we have been exposed to other travelers on our aircraft sneezing and coughing without covering their mouth or nose. Most of the time at the end of our flight or even during the flight, one of us will get ill with a severe cold. Being enclosed in an aircraft for over 12 hours with people who do not exercise even the most rudimentary preventions of spreading germs is a prescription for illness and a miserable vacation.
Prior to taking off, I think the flight attendants should admonish the travelers to exercise common courtesy by covering their mouth or nose when coughing or sneezing.
