SARS - Would you risk it?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've seen that flights to the far East are dead cheap now cos of SARS .. .some of the prices being offered are really tempting .. would you guys risk going to places like Hong Kong, Singapore, etc for a cheap flight?

    yeah, i would go. the chances of getting it are really quite slim - it is/was all just hype in the media.

    I'd go but I'd be pretty careful. Not that I have money. At all.

    Actually I'd be more worried about catching SARS in the airplane more then anywhere else!! An enclosed space for like 12 hours!!

    Plus the air in the plane is recycled and they often turn down the mix of recycled and fresh air to save money (it use's more fuel to supply more fresh air)

    ooh. ... I dare you to wear one of those white masks for the whole journey!!!

    That would be so funny!!!

    Wait until the plane has taken off and put it on, bet you'll find suddenly the seats next to your become empty!!!

    Where are you flying to?

    I know someone who's going to China in just over a week. He said he was going to get one of those white masks and write 'infected' across it. Hmm..well..it was amusing at the time. The whole SARS thing did amuse the whole group that's going actually :/
