As far as I know, there is no evidence of anyone infected in a flight. Please provide me a link if I am wrong. You believe, as the virus is very contagious, that there should be 10 or 30 resulting infections in flights for every positive person who board but this is very unlikely, because no one has never been found.
You ask me if I would seat for +1 hours next to a sick person ? Certainly not. But I can manage the risk to seat near a person who wear a mask, has not been tested positive recently, has no obvious symptom, no fever, and has as much chance as anyone in the country I am living in to carry the virus, especially in an environment when the air is filtered every 3 minutes.
By the way, what is the difference between a domestic flight and an international flight coming from a country with the same or a lower infection rate as we have in Canada (except maybe a longer flight time) ?
I will point you to this study: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/11/20-3353_article
