APPLETON (NBC 26) — It's that time of year when people start thinking of spring break and escaping to a warm place.

But this year, spring break travel is different because of the pandemic.

We spoke with a travel advisor about flying:

"Each one is a little bit different. Right now, Delta's the only one that's still blocking the middle seat and has indicated that they're going to do that until the end of April. But I don't know that that's a deal breaker for many people,” explained Rose Gray, the Business Relationship Director at Fox World Travel.

She estimates about half as many people are flying now, compared to before the pandemic.
