First and Business-Class Flyers Now Exempt From Wearing A Mask, Not Applicable to Peasants

Flying in first class comes with lots of perks, but Cathay Pacific Airways is upping the ante during the pandemic by exempting wealthy passengers from wearing masks in certain situations, according to Executive Traveller

“Now there’s at least one more reason to fly in business class or first class, especially with Cathay Pacific: the airline will exempt passengers in those premium cabins from wearing a face mask when they recline their seat to a fully-flat position.

Cathay Pacific’s reasoning is that the high enclosures surrounding its business class seats and first class suites, along with the greater degree of personal space and thus the distance between travellers, helps combat the airborne spread of coronavirus between passengers.

The Hong Kong-based airline made face masks compulsory for all passengers on May 15 at all stages of their journey, from airport check-in to lounges as well as during the flight.

However, in an internal memo issued on Friday, Cathay Pacific advised crew that a mask exemption will apply “when a passenger is lying flat in business or first class.”

However, the new policy doesn’t apply for economy seating as they must keep their masks on at all times. 

What do you think?

People are flying in private planes so they don’t have to deal with the nonsense from TSA and Karen. That’s the only way to travel. Just like divorce it’s worth every cent!

Hunger Games movies are becoming reality. A few elite excel while the rest suffer. And this is what the majority of people want. This is what they voted for, they voted for their enslavement and poverty.

The middle class and poor have always agreed to take it up the butt. They have a complicit attitude – that is why they will always be poor and powerless.

Mega-rich = no vaccine, no mask, natural food, wonderful estates.

Common folk = DNA altering/ID vaccine, two masks oxygen-depriving masks, eat pesticide laden bugs, live in a techno slave state.

Makes as much sense as the garbage the liberal media is spouting about the coronavirus only spreading at Trump rallies, but never among the BLM and Antifa “peaceful protests.”
