In my case, fairly easy.
1) Not envisaging any commercial flights in the near future.
2) For me to do a short-haul flight for which a 737 is typically used would be rare (I did do an internal flight in the US last year, but that was after the Max had been grounded).
3) If the flight was to be a route for which a 737 was a possibility, avoid the airlines that have bought the Max in the first place, or see if I can find out which type will be operated on that sector.
4) With my regularity of short-haul flights, 1) to 3) should give me several years of verifying that no further accident / incident occurs.
5) Fly myself - it’s more fun !
You are still dangerous! You can be my wingman anytime
