Air travel is a modern moral conundrum, but for some people it is unavoidable due to their job description. I will talk about my friend, Maximillian who is a pilot. He used to travel by air in nine-hour shifts for international flights, though currently, the airlines have suspended all travel due to Covid-19.
He is what one would call a true globetrotter, he loves to travel, and even takes his family abroad for his vacations. Whenever I call him I expect a new answer to the question, “Where are you?”. Due to this we have even stopped playing Atlas on our monthly game nights; it’s so unfair, he always wins.
But I’m glad to have a friend like him, he tells great stories and really puts into perspective how the world works. Although sometimes I do wonder how much air pollution the industry causes, I can hardly fault him for doing his job.
Max has traveled to both exceedingly wealthy countries and pitifully impoverished nations. He likes to tell us about his stays at various locations. I would say, due to his traveling he is the most worldly of us. He is a telling example of how travelling can broaden our horizons and influence our personality positively. His undeniable humility can attest to the same. I am proud that he does what he loves, that his job not only teaches him, but by extension also us, his friend group.
