looks healthy enough...just a little annoying to repot. I use an open mix and clay pots, so I just stick the aerial roots into the pot and water a little less. I haven't really paid attention to see if the roots end up rotting, but usually there's a flush of new roots anyway. I don't think there's any good way to keep aerial roots aerial when the roots have developed from new growths like that. (Short of mounting the plant, at least.)
If the roots are excessively long, it may be beneficial to trim them with a sterile knife. The thought is that if the roots are going to get broken during the repotting process (which is decidedly un-gentle for catts), you might as well get rid of them to begin with so as to prevent them from rotting inside the pot.
