Knock knock. Mr Dementia er Biden. Are you listening you freaking idiot? Get the Fauci man on the horn and drop this crap once snd for all.

The advocacy group Airlines for America issued President Joe Biden a letter demanding the end of mask mandates for transportation, and other COVID-19 requirements, such as pre-departure testing for international flights.



The letter from the group’s board of directors was signed by the leaders of 10 major U.S. airlines, including American Airlines, United Airlines Holdings, Delta Air Lines, and Southwest Airlines.

Others include the leaders of UPS Airlines, Fedex Express, JetBlue Airways, Alaska Air Group, and Atlas Air Worldwide.

“We are encouraged by the current data and the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions from coast to coast, which indicate it is past time to eliminate COVID-era transportation policies,” the group wrote in their letter, which comes as overall numbers of infections decline in the nation, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

All 50 U.S. states have announced plans to lift indoor mask mandates.

Now let's be rational about this! If we let people onto planes without masks and everyone dies that's going to look pretty bad. This plot smacks a whole lot of racism, fascism, Trumpism, Putinism and the death of democracy as we know it.

It is truly pathetic that you think you're *getting* the left with what you apparently think is sarcasm.

All because some execs did their duty by demanding things that would increase profitability. What a noble thing to defend!

He triggered you, so I guess he was successful in "getting" the left. (at least ONE of the left, anyway)

Number one: Isn't there a new variant? 2. With seats so close together now, I WILL wear a damn mask. I don't enjoy sucking in what's been in
somebody else's lungs. Not just Covid but cold viruses also.

All of those executives can then be held liable for every case of COVID/Variants that is traced back to their planes.

Impossible. Why track a flu bug?

It’s the natural evolution of things as people no longer are living in total fear of Covid and returning to a more normal existence.

Living in fear was unwise. Should have never given up any of our freedoms

I flew one time during the pandemic in the summer of 2020. In my particular case the masks did not make a lot of sense being so few people on board. As long as people can still choose to wear one of that’s what they want then maybe it’s time to look at lifting the mandate.
