Well, my opinion?
Sure we will lose, maybe, a few passengers that will just flat out refuse to fly sitting next to a stranger. However, with that said, I also say now with all the exceptional care taken with the over and above cleaning and disinfecting of aircraft, airports, gate areas etc., plus with the mandated mask and/or face coverings, that most will still fly with very cautious and well prepared PPE being worn, if not, they will get removed from the flight.
We all know this time is coming, as it is for Delta too soon, the airlines just can't continue to leave those seats empty and stay in business at the rates we are currently seeing with flying passengers.
Vaccine soon and I think the flying will start to slowly pick up a bit, IMO.

I agree with you, but I don't think the number of passengers selecting WN is going to change by a noticeable amount. The typical WN passenger trusts WN to do the "right thing."
