What country are you coming from? UK has high rates of swine flu, so it may well be that the flight is the least likely place where you'll be exposed. But depends on where you're coming from and whether it's a common route for lots of multiple trips that makes it likely that there will be people on the flight who travel a lot between the UK and other places.
Have you looked at all the NHS info on the UK situation? That's probably more relevant to take into account.
So I'm not the only one being affected by "the hype"?!
It's a tricky situation as my whole family are in the UK and we are supposed to be getting together for a family reunion. If I make the decision to not go this time around, surely things will be worse re: swine flu for the remainder of the year and therefore it could be next year before I see them! They are also keen to see my newborn baby
I wouldn't risk it. I have cancelled all my trips and also asked people from UK not to visit. Not worth the risk. DH had confirmed swine flu and was quite unwell for several days (very high fever hard to control), he did get tamiflu quickly and so did my 3 yo dd and myself. I want to do everything possible not to get it and then to get the vaccin asap.
