WATCH: American And Southwest C.E.Os Admit Masks Are Useless On Airplanes


Finally some truth manages to shine through….

According to the latest reports, the C.E.O’s of both American and Southwest Airlines have both testified that masks don’t do much of anything to control the spread of the virus on airplanes.

The reason for this is found in the air filtration systems on board commercial jet liners.

According to the testimony provided by these C.E.O’s an airplane is actually one of the safest indoor places a person can be due to the air filtration systems on board.

Knowing this, why did they support the mask mandates?

Let’s take a look at what they had to say:

Newsmax reports:

Kelly further stated: “The statistics I recall is that 99.97% of airborne pathogens are captured by the [high efficiency particulate air] filtering system, and it’s turned over every two or three minutes.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., and several other Democrats in the House of Representatives have expressed their support for a federal COVID-19 vaccine requirement for air travel.

CNN Business had more:

The comments from American Airlines (AAL) CEO Doug Parker — the nation’s largest carrier — and Southwest (LUV) CEO Gary Kelly came during a hearing about the financial support that airlines received from the federal government in 2020 and 2021.

But the topic of masks arose via a question from Sen. Roger Wicker, the ranking Republican on the Senate committee holding the hearing.

“I think the case is very strong that masks don’t add much, if anything, in the air cabin environment. It is very safe and very high quality compared to any other indoor setting,” said Kelly.
