Fliers in the United States have gotten used to bringing their own food, but now they'll have to bring their own beverages, too.

What really needs to happen is to have all those middle seats remain on the ground until this disaster passes. Two weeks? A month? Whatever it takes to minimise human suffering. People need to stay away from each other so this virus dies of starvation.

All passenger airports should be closed except for emergency traffic for the duration.

Random somewhat related follow up since I can't edit my comment:

The various surfaces you touch while on the plane (seat belt buckles, tray tables, ect) are the biggest risk in my opinion. Fiddling with the tray and then scratching an itch on your face is a larger issue than simply sitting near someone especially because it appears many people are asymptomatic. This has been the case even before COVID-19.

I've heard from a few people who have traveled in the US recently and the planes were near empty (3 passengers in one case!). Luckily, from the standpoint of preventing the spread of the virus, most people simply are not traveling!

Can't bring the fluids from outside through security....once past security numerous shops and restaurants offer take-out and to go for you to enjoy in the spacious seat of your flight.
