Pandemic and HVAC killed air travel for me

It’s weird but I really just don’t miss traveling by plane at all.

Granted, since or territories were realigned when we left the zone controlled HVAC of the office during the pandemic, I have less far to travel for business.

The company I work for closed the zone controlled HVAC of the offices up only a couple of weeks into the outbreak of Covid. That left those of us who have to meet with customers a bit out in the cold. It took several meeting for us to rearrange the territory map so we could drive to our costumers. That summer, I spent a lot of time inside my car what the air conditioning on max. But I found that there were a lot of pluses that went with traveling over the road instead of flying. For one, I didn’t have one missed appointment that whole summer due to a flight cancellation. That’s the first time for that in my entire career perhaps. But I also never missed being so hot on the planes. For some reason, I seem to find the flights where the HVAC cooling just isn’t getting it done. I got off those flights and would have to check into the hotel just to change into a new suit before going to see the customer. Sure, it takes a bit more planning and a bit longer to get around my new territory but I’m fine with that. Plus, I’d much rather stay at the interstate hotels where the heating and cooling is far more consistent.
