They are fed up and willing to take the risk of at least ending up in qurantine for 2 weeks when they get back or getting caught up in a Corona spike in the holiday country.

It depends. 'Flying abroad' is too general.

If you're going on holiday, then yes you should think very carefully about it and maybe wait until things have improved. But what about people going abroad using other means? Eurotunnel for example are offering 'contact-free travel' since you stay in your car, and driving to your destination(if possible) would be very low risk. Is that the same as people flying for holidays?

However, people need to fly for many reasons, not all of them leisure-related. People returning for work, going to visit family abroad, family emergencies like bereavement etc. So I won't engage in blanket judgment of those travelling at the moment since we don't know everyone's circumstances.

This is true, but caution is still needed because getting Corona ain't fun obviously.

Many people get corona and don't even realize it. You and your family/whoever you're living with could have had coronavirus, and perhaps you didn't realize it. Even of the small number of people who get it and it affects them enough for them to have symptoms, an even smaller percentage of those actually suffer severely. And those who die are usually those with underlying conditions/ those who would have passed on regardless of corona.
Yes, it's not fun, but it isn't an extremely giant risk or life-threatening to most.

You may not have " a lightweight skeleton made of mostly thin and hollow bones. The keel-shaped sternum (breastbone) is where the powerful flight muscles attach to the body. ... " And you may not have powerful enough breast muscles? Just wondering? lol.

Or picture I a situation where somebody had booked a holiday and isn’t too keen on going but if they don’t and they cancel it they lose about £2000+ . I don’t really agree with spontaneous bookings atm but my holiday couldn’t be cancelled as I tried so many ways to before I had to head out to avoid wasting a lot of money

I've seen a couple of mates go on holiday and I'm in two minds tbh.

Like yeah I get it. We want some normality in life.

But it's really not the time rn. At the end of the day it's their call tbf

I would rather lose £2000+ money than lose my life or put anyone else in jeopardy.

actually you have a legal right to cancel a holiday without losing money- unless its last minute or that Corona had nothing to do with it. The hoiday provider and airline cannot legally just keep your money.

Those going abroad for non essential reasons are completely lacking common sense.
