Airline CEOs are pushing back against one ridiculous COVID policy

The American people are done with burdensome COVID restrictions.

And the media’s attention has shifted almost entirely to the war in Ukraine.

Now, airline CEOs are pushing back against one ridiculous COVID policy.

Ever since Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate was struck down by the Supreme Court, the COVID regime has been on its last legs.

A clear sign that the American people were largely done with COVID mania was when Democratic governors and mayors in deep-blue cities like San Francisco lifted some of the more draconian restrictions.

Now, airline CEOs want the mask mandates lifted because they don’t make any sense.

W. Douglas Parker (American), Ed Bastian (Delta), Robin Hayes (JetBlue), Gary C. Kelly (Southwest), and several others wrote in a letter to Biden:

“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.”

It’s not just the CEOs; the flight attendants are fed up with the mandates as well.

The Southwest Airlines flight attendant union wrote to the Biden administration:

“Serving onboard during these contentious times and enforcing mask compliance is one of the most difficult jobs we have ever faced as flight attendants…We strongly believe it is now time to give our members and passengers the opportunity to choose if they prefer to wear a mask while flying…In the spirit of bringing normalcy back to our front lines as aviation’s first responders, we ask that you consider lifting the federal mask mandate for airline travel and will move expeditiously to restore choice to aviation professionals and the flying public.”

In other words, the flight attendants don’t fear that their safety is in jeopardy, and they hate having to enforce mandates that do not make any sense.

COVID transmission on commercial flights was never an issue.

The planes have HEPA filters that constantly circulate clean air through the cabins.

The airline mandates have remained in place for no good reason and it’s time for them to end.

Biden and the COVID regime are clinging on to some restrictions in case they want to pivot back to full-blown hysteria.

After a hiatus, Dr. Anthony Fauci re-emerged on the corporate press news shows to warn people that he could return in his role as the Grinch and shut down society.

But the American people are not up for it again.
