Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
“Are you going abroad this winter?”
“I hope so, but everything is in air at present.”.
be in the air = in an uncertain state; the situation is still in suspense, the situation is still in abeyance, remain hanging in the air
Thank you for your efforts.

You're correct, but it's 'in the air', as you subsequently wrote.
