Why social distancing on the ground transportation, and not on QR? Big commentary on restricted passenger numbers on ground transportation, from what media says. Some dispensation for QR?
Simply because the economics of airplanes and ground transport are different. In widebody J, people are generally more spread out by default. In Y, QR have been blocking middle seats but they do become available at check in. Effectively socially distancing (i.e. no one in a 6ft radius) is basically impossible in Y.
