Travel while sick?

If you are sick, should you fly? Does it matter how sick? Does it matter if you feel sick but have no visible signs? Who should judge – airline, passenger, other passengers, compulsory medical check at check in? Do the airlines’ policies and rules encourage sick travelers to keep traveling even when they should rest? See the discussion in the ah-choo, airlines bump sick passengers thread.

    You don’t have a choice as the airlines will not allow you to rebook your trip without penalties. This year I have already flown sick and was coughing for the entire flight. I am sure I spread germs – but what else was I to do?

    Ethically, You shouldn’t. But it also depends whats the nature of sickness. Of you are likely to spread germs and harm other, you better think twice before traveling. But still it is hard to neglect the “Penalties” issue.
