I was flying Chicago to Denver on United B777. Before my flight, I met up my United friend Mike Hanna, who headed up United Chicago hub operations. He gave me a tour about the new measures taken to make travel cleaner and safer such as social distancing at terminal and lounge, temperature check for all employees, installing of glass shields at check in, the electrostatic spray of cleaning terminal and inside the plane. He also showed me a HEPA filter and explained how air filter system work inside the plane.
Then I flew on the World’s oldest active B777, N774UA, a original Boeing 777-200 A model from Chicago to Denver. The plane was 26.0 years old, line number 002 from Boeing. During my flight, I met up with fellow passengers, pilots and cabin crew to see what’s changed in air travel. I documented the new boarding procedures, the change in food and beverage served onboard and everything. I talked to several passengers about how they feel of flying In the pandemic.
United currently do not have social distancing onboard their planes but said they will alert passengers if the flight is 70% or more full for options.
