You are definitely using independent thought - and, apparently, your own "independent" numbers (and no "real data" at all). Maybe you could provide us with some actual, legitimate sources and facts...
I'll make this even more simple for you.
1) How many confirmed covid cases have there been in the US? ~33 million
2) How many actual covid cases are there that existed but weren't counted in the confirmed case count stat? about 3x that, most likely https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/2021020 ... dercounted
So that puts it around ~100milion
3) How many people age 0-17 have died who had covid? 287
4) How many people 18-29 have died who had covid? 2,163
5) How many people 30-39 have died who had covid? 6,299
6) In each of those age groups, how many more people actually had covid than were tested and confirmed? Extrapolate total cases by the 3x multiplier above for a good idea
7) What percentage of those total cases are in the age 30-39 group? About 16-17% https://www.aarp.org/health/conditions- ... dults.html
8) Let's assume that 17% is accurate, and 17% of the total estimated cases in the US (~100milion) are age 30-39. That's 17,000,000 total cases for those age 30-39. With 6,299 deaths. 6,299/17,000,000 = 0.00037, or 0.037% infection fatality rate for those age 30-39. Even less for those younger than 30.

Now, since I once again did all the legwork for you, tell me this. What is the percentage chance someone who has been fully vaccinated will be hospitalized or killed from covid? Low enough that the CDC now says no need for masks.
Take that a step further. If an unvaccinated airline employee is *asymptomatic* (remember, a symptomatic employee cannot legally be at work), what are the chances they 1) even have covid and 2) are shedding virus that will cause a fully vaccinated person to get covid? Very very small.
And let's take that even further. In a plane with 150 people in it, there will likely be a mix of vaccinated and unvaccinated people, as there is no way vaccination status will be a condition of flying domestically for customers. So, what are the chances an asymptomatic crew member is a vector, when there is a whole plane full of mixed vaxxed/unvaxxed customers? The chance of a crewmember being the issue you're worried about (especially a pilot locked up front), is infinitesimally small.
Sorry, the statistics don't really work out well for your argument, which is 100% feelings based.
If you want to get protected...great. I think all high covid risk people should, which is definitely everyone over the age of 50, maybe those over the age of 40 (though the data really isn't that bad for 40-49 year olds either...about 3x worse than for 30-39 year olds). The good thing about America is choice and freedom. You do you. I'll do me. The difference between you and me? One of us is tolerant. One of us isn't.
