to ease the rules before the industry's most profitable season starts.

Ah yes money. But this is a national security issue. They should be fined for pursuing actions that threaten the country

"Britain's strict quarantine requirements still in place", HA! what a joke that is, when this new covid variant was discovered ( in/from India) there were 4 flights a day for two week BEFORE they did something about it, like restricting travel from India, 300+ people on a plane, times by four, times by two weeks, all of these xxx thousend travelers were allowed to come into the UK without being taken to a quarantine hotel or sent back to India. TBH the UK is pretty slack on restrictions, were supose to self isolate when we come back to the UK but the fact is no one does, as there is no one to check up. lots of rules but no one is there to enforce any of them.

Come on America--let us in.

Since 16 March 2020, it is not possible for most British nationals to enter the USA if they have been in the UK, Ireland, Schengen zone, Iran, Brazil, or China within the previous 14 days.

Maybe the US doesn't want the Delta variant from the UK.

Iran, China--self-evident.

30 million 46.4% UK citizens fully vaccinated.

Bizarre. Do you want Americans allowed into the UK and return with the Delta variant but not allowing UK citizens into America?

Anyway, international travel is a bummer with all the Covid regulations, tests, quarantines. Need to travel to both the UK/USA but not likely this year.

Definitely don't want the other 54.6% of unvaccinated UK citizens entering the US. Of course.

Obviously the Americans who would be going to the UK would be vaccinated. And what about the "30 million 46.4% UK citizens fully vaccinated."? Wasn't that supposed too mean the UK is safe? Which is it?

Bizarre.

Why it's not a requirement to enter the UK. Test and quarantine.

I am a British passport but I have not visited the UK since before the pandemic and live in Japan but still can't travel to the USA.

Fully vaccinated won't mean anything for international travel unless people can travel without testing and quarantines.

Japan and America are on the UK amber list so Americans can enter after testing and quarantine.

That's your statement and not mine but anyway it's not a UK entry requirement.

Delta variant is already in the USA

Covid-19 cases have fallen far below the winter peak, but the Delta variant has roughly doubled every two weeks in the US.

Okkkk, but irrelevant.

I doubt even next year we'll see international travel like it was before the pandemic. Vaccinations, vaccination passports, travelling for many hours wearing masks, restricted flights, testing and quarantines. Increased costs and expenses.

BALPA is demanding that the UK Government gets its act together and opens the U.S. routes and European holiday travel destinations that it has blocked with no published evidence at all."

Uh? 128,000 deaths, variants originating in overseas countries, what other evidence is needed. This is a tragedy for the industry but safety measures are still needed

I did. Shame on you if you didn’t.
