As Andy says, there could be people on the flight who have contracted Covid between testing and boarding. So testing is more for appearing safe rather than actually being safe. And a flight has no greater risk than the many activities we can do locally either with no requirements at all or by showing vaccination status.
I guess the difference is the only place I am looking to travel to at the moment (other than Florida - which won't have us) is Portugal.

I own my own house there, and we have our house in the Uk. My work is all "remote/online" so I guess to me there is little difference in being stranded abroad, I'd be equally happy in either country

I realise this is a minority scenario, but I did say it was my opinion and the issue of being stranded abroad doesn't affect me so it would be hard to have a different opinion
