Delta Has Placed over 100 People on No-fly List for Refusing to Wear a Mask, CEO Says

Enviado há
 
Delta has already placed more than 100 people on a no-fly list for refusing to wear a mask, the carrier’s CEO Ed Bastian said earlier this week, in an effort to crack down on its mask policy. “We’ve been... steadily and rather aggressively stepping up our enforcement of the mask policy,” Bastian said in an interview on the TODAY show this week. “You cannot board a Delta plane unless you have a mask on. If you board the plane and you insist on not wearing your mask, we will insist that you don’t… (www.travelandleisure.com) Mais...

Good. I fully understand claiming its one's right to wear or not to wear however if a company post it's notices properly you abide by them or find another company to deal with. We all have rights....Delta has theirs, we have ours.

Brad Littlejohn 20
I agree with you, except for one small thing. Our 1A rights are not absolute, so we do not have a right to refuse to wear a mask if we have been mandated to do so. SCOTUS ruled as such, roughly 115 years ago.

That's not the WHO's official position. One WHO official spoke in a confusing manner making subtle distinctions between being asymptomatic and presymptomatic. But the WHO came back and clarified.

See: https://www.statnews.com/2020/06/09/who-comments-asymptomatic-spread-covid-19/

Quote from link: "The WHO created confusion yesterday when it reported that asymptomatic patients rarely spread the disease,” an email from the Harvard Global Health Institute said Tuesday. “All of the best evidence suggests that people without symptoms can and do readily spread SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. In fact, some evidence suggests that people may be most infectious in the days before they become symptomatic — that is, in the presymptomatic phase when they feel well, have no symptoms, but may be shedding substantial amounts of virus."

If masks do not protect, then why do surgeons where them?

They wear them so the surgeon does not spit into the open wound and contaminate the field. By wearing a mask you lower the "spit" you produce by breathing and talking and therefore you limit the ability to pass on the virus to others - especially if you are asymptomatic.

If everyone would wear a mask when they are out and about, the spread of the virus would be significantly curtailed.

If you are going to repeat the same old drivel, I will respond with facts and data.

It's been known for quite a while that the virus can enter through the eyes. He's saying we might have to wear eye coverings. What's next, a hazmat suit? If I'm not ill, test negative, do I still have to wear one?
MisterNews
Eugene Lisansky 4
This is mostly untrue. Eyes have several defense mechanisms: tears, blinking, lashes. A virus could potentially enter when you TOUCH your eyes (nose, or mouth) with unwashed hands. There is zero evidence of ocular infection by aerosolized virus. Infection MIGHT be possible via large droplet contact from a proximal cough or sneeze, but that's why social distancing helps.

The adage that 'Your rights end at my nose' is so true now. No matter what they do, everyone on that plane breathes that air too, and those virus particles can end up in everyone's eyes.

You have the right to be an ass, but you do not have the right to inflict your stupidity on everyone else. Delta is doing the right thing, and maybe the concept of 'together we are stronger' might come back. The whole idea of 'society' is to live and function for the betterment of all. That has been dismissed and ridiculed in this country in the past 10 years or so.

We look out for each other, or we all fail. Simple. Stupidity about masks is selfish.

What you're saying is a crock. But I won't give you my opinion. I'll let SCOTUS do that for me:

The liberty secured by the Constitution of the United States to every person within its jurisdiction does not import an absolute right in each person to be, at all times and in all circumstances, wholly freed from restraint. There are manifold restraints to which every person is necessarily subject for the common good. On any other basis, organized society could not exist with safety to its members. Society based on the rule that each one is a law unto himself would soon be confronted with disorder and anarchy. Real liberty for all could not exist under the operation of a principle which recognizes the right of each individual person to use his own, whether in respect of his person or his property, regardless of the injury that may be done to others. This court has more than once recognized it as a fundamental principle that

"persons and property are subjected to all kinds of restraints and burdens, in order to secure the general comfort, health, and prosperity of the State, of the perfect right of the legislature to do which no question ever was, or upon acknowledged general principles ever can be, made so far as natural persons are concerned."

- Justice John Marshall Harlan, United States Supreme Court

The case? Jacobsen v. Massachusetts. 7-2 MAJORITY decision, with the above being the majority opinion. And right now, you really don't want to talk about "race, slavery, and stripping people of their dignity and rights." Don't you dare get started.

My fear though, is a ruthlessly right wing SCOTUS could very well turn American Democracy on it's head. That is why trump and McConnell have spent so much time rubber stamping the Federalist Society hand picked extremists. ASo many of them are completely unqualified for a job judging a dog show, and they will be judging real legal cases for their lives safely ensconced in their black robes.

It will take decades to get rid of the contamination forced into the legal system. Already, the cases they have decided are triggering alarms for their obvious partisan nature. Nothing has been left untouched, tarnished, by the thrashing of this president. There has been grave damage done to this country. This is aside of the damage to the respect for science, which in it self is horrific.

I've traveled on all the majors since the Pandemic started, with the exception of AA,
Delta is doing a great job, but where I live United is my best option. I'm also within striking distance of a million flown miles, which will at least allow some perks (I hope thru retirement) From the beginning the crews, airport staff (all) were and are responsible for saving their own industry, by making any and all potential customers feel safe - BY WEARING A -flipping - MASK. If you want the dollars of the the older population (who have the money and time to fly) you have to make them feel that its safe enough to return!

These comments look a lot like many facebook posts, the way people are attacking rather than discussing. If Delta wants to enforce masks on their own flights, they certainly have every right to do so. It's the same as no shirt no shoes no service, full stop. I do not have a right to get into your car without following your rules, just because you have a taxi. It's not public space.

If you choose to travel on an airline’s particular flight and that airline requires you to wear a mask, you would be childish and disingenuous to refuse once onboard and inflight. Being on the no-fly list and trying to get your name removed can be a lengthy and expensive proposition, enough to wake up at least some of these anti-maskers. It doesn’t matter if you are a conspiracy freak and feel that COVID 19 doesn’t exist, is no big deal, or that masks can’t reduce transmission. When you bought your ticket you were informed to the airline’s policy, also when checking in and boarding, there is no excuse to fail to comply with the instructions. Don’t fly if you refuse to mask up

Bottom line- the virus does not Care

Not the right place or time to fight this war.
When forced to wear a mask, most do.
When not forced to wear a mask most don’t.
At some level we all know it’s just a con, but we go along to get along.
We have been forced to wear a mask to fly. So wear something.
When you look at what constitutes compliance with the rule you realize that it is not about medical safety.
A nylon stocking pulled over my face.
An old bandanna around my neck, pulled up as needed.
The vented N-95 mask sold at Home Depot meant to protect while installing insulation.
A mask reused 100 times, full of spit and germs.
These and many more ineffective methods will bring you into compliance.
Properly worn a medical grade device is changed both any time it is touched or after 30 minutes of wear.
If you are afraid, wear a face shield and a new medical grade devise.
If you see reality wear the most comfortable, least obtrusive thing you can.
Fight this battle in another forum. Loosing flight privileges is real even if the mask mandate is a scam.

My office is getting calls about this from clearly disabled people that have doctor notes that cannot wear masks that are being shamed and yelled at. Some of the first lawsuits are coming concerning this (Nike being sued for requiring employees to wear masks and the deaf cannot read their lips and communicate). Let's all be a little tolerant and then I will not become busier and have to hire more lawyers to handle all these issues. If someone is not wearing a mask or someone is wearing a mask, just move on. Lets all agree to disagree and move on.

If they require a mask to fly then wear one, if you don’t want to wear one drive. It should still be about a choice as a person, masks do no good , if you are scared wear one but don’t force your choose on others, that’s communism. I still to this day do not wear seatbelts, I have seen people die from internal injuries at low speeds because of them, but still it should be a choice. I have no fear of a virus if your fear drives you to wear a mask that’s your choose , what is the slogan... my body my choose guess that works in more ways than one huh ?

Speaking as a former EMT, I can tell you that I never unbuckled a seriously injured victim of a car accident. On the other hand, I cannot count the number of times that a seriously injured accident victim was removed (and often succumbed later to his/her injuries) who had NOT buckled up but suffered massive injuries from being unrestrained in a crash. Force equals mass times velocity. It's physics, the same physics that governs the motion of aircraft.

complete, total garbage. every single word you have said. But let's take your "numbers", or lack thereof, into account. And let's even add in a 1% mortality rate.

If the US population is roughly 328 million people, 1% of the people that would die from this would mean 3.2 million people would die. That would throw a couple hundred monkey wrenches/spanners into our economy no matter what conspiracy you come up with. That's more than double the annual deaths at once. But we're not just talking deaths here, as we're talking those infected, symptomatic, asymptomatic, or otherwise. So for every one person that dies:

19 more require hospitalization.
18 would have permanent heart damage for the rest of their lives.
10 would have permanent lung damage, including pulmonary embolisms,
3 will have strokes,
2 will have neurological damage that leads to chronic weakness and loss of coordination, and
2 would have neurological damage that leads to loss of cognitive function.

So even with your numbers, and adding in a 1% mortality rate, you have:

3.28 million people dead.
62.3 million people hospitalized.
59 million people with permanent heart damage.
32.8 million people with permanent lung damage.
9.8 million people with strokes.
6.5 million people with muscle weakness, and
6.5 million people with loss of cognitive functions.

And these numbers reflect what you SEE with your own EYES. Perhaps you should practice what you preach and look at the CDC data yourself.

It is not as easily transmitted as you fear. Every time a testing study is done the death rate goes down. More people have had it without knowing it than have been sickened by it.
Everyone will eventually be exposed to it, mask or not, that’s how virus work. They eventually pass through the entire population. In the end it will be just another bug. The scary numbers you quote will be hundreds of times overstated.
Remember when the death rate was 5-7% and millions would die? Yes your post is more of the same.

If we do everything right, like we should have done when all of this broke out last December, we WON'T be talking about another swine flu outbreak, because we would have not only COVID-19 under control, but would also have a head start on any Avian/Swine/ flu/H1N1/H5N1 outbreak, because we finally would have put the right foundations in place.

It's easier to deal with NO numbers than any numbers, whether or not you think that it's garbage. Keep in mind that your rights to do what you want with this virus not only end where mine begin, but are not absolute. If you don't comply, the airlines, let alone the government can do what they want with you, whether you like it or not.

"Many in both our political and media classes, however, have no desire for people to be well informed about relative risks. People who are afraid, after all, will engage in socially demanded behaviors. So why risk giving them an accurate picture of their situation? Politicians and the media are not informing the public so much as managing it, an impulse we must call out and fight.

We should also resist the ratcheting effect of a growing culture of safetyism, most excellently discussed in an UnHerd article by Matthew Crawford. He writes, “At the level of sentiment, there appears to be a feedback loop wherein the safer we become, the more intolerable any remaining risk appears. At the level of bureaucratic grasping, we can note that emergency powers are seldom relinquished once the emergency has passed.”"

A non-medical mask is such a simple way to help protect your fellow citizens when physical distancing is difficult. Oh, should I ask it? Yes I will. Do you care about your fellow citizens or is it only about you, you, you, you.?............

With the track record of ‘experts’ during the course of this debacle, no one from the WHO, CDC, NIH all the way to state and local health officials have a shred of credibility left. They have contradicted themselves and pontificated countless chunks of information that was just flat wrong. Add that to the deliberate, fraudulent manipulation of statistics to fit a particular narrative and there is no credibility. Even social media giants are playing doctor and censoring posts that don’t fit the narrative. Then you’ve got the biggest vacuum in corporate leadership ever seen across all industries that follow blindly like lemmings, not because there is any established track record for these measures, but because it “feels good” and “feels safer”. Then they are going to ban desperately needed customers. That’s not even lose to smart....

This was in 2005, was only tested on cell cultures, and was not the currently circulating novel coronavirus. Recent rigorous studies have not shown effectiveness in human subjects against COVID-19.

When you have a wife in hospital dying from this chinese born attack such as I do then I would like to listen to your head in the sand rantings and manipulation of statistics maybe then from a different perspective

Alan, I’m very sorry your wife is ill. I’m sure all of us regardless of personal opinions wish her the very best. You and your wife are in my family’s thoughts hoping for a full recovery.
My son picked up meningitis when just a few months old. For two weeks it was nip and tuck, he could have gone at any time in those 14 days of high fever. His hearing could have been lost, even severe brain damage was a potential. I never hurt so much before or since. In a small way I can’t understand what you are going through

If you want to see REAL fascism, look no further than PDX. Trumps personal Stazi and their fascist tactics are on full display. You can fly Delta to get there, but don't forget your mask. Masks hurt less than rubber bullets.

You do realize that FPS agents are already at federal buildings around the country on a daily basis even before all this happened right? That is their job after all, to protect federal property and the people therein.

Billy bob believes the propaganda about “mostly peaceful protests”
Has a bad case of TDS. I think they are way to nice to the rioters, damaging, looting, assaulting those that disagree.
Overall criminals in need of the jack boot

Regarding the "Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS)", the group's name makes gives the impression that it is a prestigious organization like the American Medical Society, whose advice is here:

This article is also excellent:

My daughter is a doctor and has an ample supply of horror stories about complete jerks she's encountered in the profession. Note that the "AAPS" membership is only about 5,000, less than 1% of American physicians.
This unmasks the AAPS:
