After a federal judge voided the mask mandate for airplanes and other public transportation, the Transportation Security Administration said it would no longer enforce the unscientific policy.
Airline companies quickly reacted by announcing they dropped all mask requirements.
United Airlines, Delta, Alaska, American and Southwest removed their mask requirements following the announcement of the judge’s ruling.
Pilots, attendants, and passengers rejoiced at the news of the idiotic mandate finally being axed by a judge with common sense.
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your pilot speaking. This is the most important announcement I’ve ever made. The federal mask mandate is over. Take off your mask if you choose!”

😷MASK MANDATE LIFTED😷
Myself, and a couple hundred others, just learned mid-flight that the mask mandate is over?!
The @Delta Airlines staff just got on the intercom to announce the mandate is lifted and now optional!
