No masks on USA flights???

Just just read on BBC news that a judge has thrown out Bidens extended mask policy. We fly tomorrow so wonder if we will have to wear them still?


  • Check with your airline - they can tell you their policies.

    Depends on the airline. I believe American Airlines have already made them optional. You still might have to wear one in the airport at this end though.

    (Personally I'd rather they'd kept masks and changed the one-day pre-departure testing but hey-ho.)

    We flew British Airways, Heathrow to Miami yesterday. Definitely had to wear masks during the flight unless eating/drinking. Masks were also compulsory at the airport state side. 
    BA made a handful of announcements during flight about wearing masks.

    On Virgins policy they have scrapped masks unless the specific country require you to wear them I believe. It still says until 18th April on their site as that’s when I believe they reviewed it. So I guess we will have to wait and see if Virgin have reviewed it yet as in theory it should now be scrapped.

    No free lunch, and no free laptop ;)
