The face mask wearing news on flights was quickly shared among Thai netizens. Many thought it was fake news because of last week’s Royal Gazette announcement. But the Anti-Fake News […]

Just back on an Emirates flight, where it is announced at check-in and on the plane, that masks MUST be worn for the entire flight. Many many not wearing, but did the dollies tell them.........NOOOOO. I did!

Like always you seem severely confused. If it would be like you said, it would be a rule, not a recommendation.

Get used to it, people have had enough of that stupid mask. If you are so scared of covid, you always have the option of staying home where you are safe, away from these terrible unmasked people.

Why fly if you are so scared of the virus? Why not do a little research and see that masks on planes don't accomplish anything.

Guarantee you he didn't tell anyone to do anything, people just love to talk.  Especially the wake folks.

You are probably right, otherwise surely someone would have told him to shut up. I would...

On my Air Canada flight from Tokyo to Vancouver there was a older male steward

He was crazy about masks

 

They gave out the food and he was following behind with the drink cart

 

And asking people what they wanted to drink, as they were eating

Then yelling at them and threatening them because they weren't wearing a mask to talk to him

 

People were just so confused, they were eating

It was very bizarre

Not really bizarre. The flight attendant should have been more professional with his instructions.   The last time I flew with Air Canada the flight attendant simply explained that they wanted you to wear a mask while you were interacting with them.  Once they have passed by your seat you are free to remove your mask and continue with your meal.

Yes but it is bizarre that they give out food, people are in the middle of taking bites of the food, are asked a question and answer it, then threatened by the person

 

The guy was a raving nutjob, trust me

 

I saw it going down and even though I thought he was being ridiculous, I put my mask on before he got to me, didn't want to have to deal with him

So it's simply a recommendation, not a rule.

This is a change from what it has been. 

Masks are no longer mandatory on flights in Thailand.

Can some journalists start asking why eating and drinking is still banned on domestic flights?

I do not like wearing a mask and think they are pretty useless, but if the rules to fly on an aeroplane say you must wear one, you do it.
