Here is a pro tip to anyone taking a flight in the next few weeks.
Casually mention to the people next to you that you have been stuck on a flight with a bunch of Chinese tourists.
Mention that the air was so dry in the cabin everyone was coughing and how that air gets circulated.
Fake a loud nasty hacking cough into your hands, snuffle a few times, say "woa, that doesn't feel right" and then rub the arm rest back and forth a few times. BAM! you have control of the arm rest for the remainder of the flight.
A month and a half later and you would be arrested for domestic terrorism for doing that.

Oh wow! Slovakia is my favorite country that shares a northern border with Hungry!

Funny thing about that. The air on a commercial flight actually does not get circulated. The air coming out if the vents is outside air, pressurized by the jet engines. It has plenty of oxygen and is perfectly breathable once pressurized.
This is not to say, of course, that being packed in with lots of other people during a plague is a good idea.
