After my first domestic flight during Covid-19, I was wondering if the international flying experience would be the same. On August 2, 2020 I boarded a flight at New York City’s, JFK International Airport (JFK) to Charlotte, NC, (CLT) connecting to Cancun Mexico (CUN) on American Airlines. I will say that, my domestic travel experience on Delta Airlines was much better, BUT American was not that bad, but they clearly have room for improvement.
I booked this flight 2 weeks out from traveling, and initially booked a direct flight to Cancun, Mexico. American Airlines cancelled all of their direct flights from JFK to Cancun, and by the time I was notified it was too late to switch airlines because pricing had increased drastically. Needless to say, I was not happy about this change and American Airlines already started off on the wrong foot. Check out how my flight went, my coronavirus travel tips, and let me know if you have traveled internationally during Covid-19, or have had any experiences with travel during coronavirus.
