Airline C.E.Os Demand Biden Drop Mask Mandate
The idea that a person would need a medical mask inside of a jet airline cabin is absurd.
C.E.Os of some of the world’s most premier airline corporations recently penned a letter to Joe Biden telling him exactly that, and asking for an end to these policies which make no sense.
Airline cabins are pressurized and the air filtration systems within them are enough to put many hospitals to shame. If there is any indoor place on earth where one wouldn’t need a mask it is likely inside of a passenger jet.
Mask mandates have been lifted nationwide in places that are arguably far more conducive to viral outbreak and transmission than a filtered air cabin.

So why does the administration continue to hang onto archaic, tyrannical, and outright nonsensical policies?
These 10 airline C.E.Os are wondering the exact same thing:
Major airline CEOs all agree: time to lift the pointless airline/airport mask mandate.
This is exactly what @tppf and I sued Biden over last month.

The Epoch Times offered this quote from the airline advocacy group:
“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.”
The airlines will be the last government body to let go of the mask mandate. Flight attendants love the power. They don't want to admit they were wrong.
