The Woke Left is Absolutely Losing It Over the End of National Mask Mandate on Flights
A federal court has struck down the national mask mandate for airline flights and other forms of public transportation. Mask addicts around the country are now losing their collective minds.
United Airlines has put out an official statement that clarified that it will no longer be enforcing masks on airline travel.
“Effective immediately, masks are no longer required at United on domestic flights, select international flights (dependent upon the arrival country’s mask requirements) or at U.S. airports,” UA said in a statement.
Alaska Airlines has also reportedly lifted its mask mandate.

The Biden administration released a statement in response to the federal court’s decision.
“The agencies are reviewing the decision and assessing potential next steps. In the meantime, today’s court decision means CDC’s public transportation masking order is not in effect at this time. Therefore, TSA will not enforce its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs at this time. CDC recommends that people continue to wear masks in indoor public transportation settings.”
But American Airlines is apparently continuing to enforce a mask mandate that had no legal basis for ever being issued. [United Airlines signaled earlier on Monday that it would continue to require masks.]
NEW: Both United and American Airlines tell @ABC they will continue to require masks on board aircraft for customers and employees, “despite the decision by a federal judge on Monday that struck down the federal mask mandate” as they await on more guidance from the US government.

One MD who is affiliated with Harvard Medical, but nonetheless doesn’t grasp that mask mandates are worthless public policy, flipped out over United Airlines’ decision.
When I bought my tickets for me, my wife (who is pregnant), and our unvaccinated 4-year-old, I assumed you would continue to have a mask mandate.
Now you cancel it and we will have to board our return flight under your new no mask required policy?!
Thanks so much.

“Hi [United],” Faust said. “When I bought my tickets for me, my wife (who is pregnant), and our unvaccinated 4-year-old, I assumed you would continue to have a mask mandate. Now you cancel it and we will have to board our return flight under your new no mask required policy?! Thanks so much.”
The odd thing about my being disappointed in @united dropping its mask mandate is how many people who claim to love kids are totally cool with this meaning that a small number of babies will die of Covid, when we’re weeks away from a vaccinate for all ages over 6 months.

Masks don’t protect wearers from viral transmission. Even for babies. Period. Maybe he should ask for a refund for his medical degree?
There was more outrage. Much more.
United can stick it..

I am sitting at the United Airlines terminal waiting for my flight. Every single individual has a mask on. This is BS. What this really means is that they are not going to make all who choose not to wear it spread their 🦠. Covid will never end.

My flight attendant just pulled the emergency exit.

Meanwhile, normal Americans are celebrating the decision and joking about lefty flight attendants no longer being able to boss passengers around.
If you think you’re having a rough day… imagine being a self-righteous liberal flight attendant who can no longer get off on that little bit of authority they had to tell you to pull your mask up after you eat.

I’m not sure if I’m happier about not having to wear a mask on the plane or happier about flight attendants not being able to run around screaming like they’re dictators of the sky.

But surely, the majority of flight attendants are relieved they no longer have to enforce the pointless policy.

Justice finally prevailed. It took a while, but it finally prevailed.
