According to CNBC, a federal judge in Florida today struck down the Biden administration’s national Covid mask mandate for planes and other forms of public transportation.
In short, the ruling was that the CDC didn’t have the authority to issue such a mandate and couldn’t make a compelling case for why they should be federally mandated.
As a result, TSA will no longer enforce the mask mandate on public transportation, however, the CDC still recommends that people wear them.
United and other airlines revealed that they would no longer require them on domestic flights.
Masks are no longer required on domestic flights, select international flights (dependent upon the arrival country's requirements) or at U.S. airports. More comfortable keeping yours on? Go right ahead… the choice is yours (you look dino-mite either way)! pic.twitter.com/hwq678v55d
Air flow in planes is so good, a study last year showed no COVID transmission between unmasked seatmates on planes. The air flows straight down and renews within minutes. If you're demanding others wear masks on planes, you're not rational or up to speed on the science.
But I have one question… are they gonna start serving beer?
Because I have to admit, that’s been the hardest on me these past two years. I mean, is there a more beautiful sight than that beverage rolling up the aisle to your seat?
The answer is no.
I don’t have money to be sitting in first class everywhere I go, and did we ever get an explanation for why first class gets booze and the rest of us peasants in coach do not?
Biggest buncha bullshit I’ve ever seen in my life… American Airlines should give everyone a dozen free beers to make up for all the soul-sucking, masked up, sober flights I was forced to endure.
I know people think alcohol is the reason we have so many fights and unruly passengers these past few years, but I’m telling you, remove the masks and hand out the beers and it’ll be smooth sailing again.
