Globetrotting Traveler Infected With SARS [...] Airlines have been saying that the filters aboard modern planes do a good job of removing viruses from the air. But according to the health department here, at least 13 people have fallen sick with SARS after they shared a flight from Hong Kong to Beijing last month with an elderly man who had become infected with the disease while visiting his brother in a hospital here.

hmmm. supposed to be in Canada this week for the Flash in the Can festival. But my wife is on some serious immunosuppressant drugs for a condition she has - this made us think twice about going... Being on a plane was definitely one of my concerns, however, can't say it would be an issue if the situation was different (i.e. no immune system issues to worry about!)
