Months after two airline CEOs testified before Congress that plane cabins have greater filtration than the typical surgical ward, we're still dealing with mandatory face masks on aircraft across the United States.
Joe Biden could order the bloated, unelected bureaucracy to end the FAA mask mandate today, but he's too busy driving up inflation and thinking of ways to undermine the Constitution to do that.
The CEOs of all America's major airlines have now had enough of the Covid theater:
Yeah, this letter is signed by CEOs of Alaska Air, Atlas Air, American Airlines, Delta, FedEx, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue, Southwest, United, UPS Airlines, and the group Airlines for America.
"Much has changed since these measures were imposed and they no longer make sense in the current public health context," the letter reads. "The persistent and steady decline of hospitalization and death rates are the most compelling indicators that our country is well protected against severe disease from COVID-19. Given that we have entered a different phase of dealing with this virus, we strongly support your view that 'COVID-19 need no longer control our lives.' Now is the time for the Administration to sunset federal transportation travel restrictions – including the international predeparture testing requirement and the federal mask mandate – that are no longer aligned with the realities of the current epidemiological environment.
Translation: Enough is enough.
You really know the disciples of The Science™ have gone off the deep end when the a state-controlled airline industry is crying foul. These CEOs are probably getting frustrated with insane fuel prices and Covid mandates that have prevented many Americans from bothering to fly over the last two years.
It makes no sense that people are still required to wear masks on airplanes, yet are allowed to congregate in crowded restaurants, schools and at sporting events without masks, despite none of these venues having the protective air filtration system that aircraft do.
Would ya look at that! Actual science!
The White House recently decided to keep the mask mandate until April 18.
The CEO's also noted that their staff have been deeply affected by having to enforce the mandate. ABC says 635 of the 961 case of "unruly" passengers this year have been related to masks.
How about we trust in the data and let people breathe the free air again, eh??
