Tips / Safety

After forking over heaps of money for an airplane ticket, the thought of missing the flight due to illness can be disheartening. Whether you’re battling the sniffles or a serious illness, here’s how to tell whether you’re probably okay to fly versus when you should stay home and investigate your reimbursement options.

 

You shouldn’t fly if:

 

Your ear hurts.

Rapid pressure changes at different elevations can cause ears to pop, and if you’re experiencing ear pain and pressure before you even board, this could lead to a burst eardrum in flight.

 

You have a fever.

A higher-than-normal body temperature means you’re fighting off an intruder that shouldn’t be there, and your body will require more fluid than normal to keep you hydrated to fend off infection. The dry air of a cabin is already dehydrating enough for healthy people and it can make sick people feel even worse.

 

You’ve been vomiting.

The air sickness bags are there for one purpose: air sickness. But if you’ve been vomiting before you even board the plane, this is often an indicator of a virus and a highly contagious one at that.

 

You have a respiratory infection.

Once again, the dry, low-oxygen, high-pressure environment inside an airplane can worsen symptoms of a respiratory infection and possibly make it more difficult to breathe.
