Passengers on flights to Thailand SHOULD all wear masks on the plane - it's not fake news

Words have specific meaning.  The post headlines (in all caps) says "SHOULD", the first paragraph says "must", then later on "recommended".  

 

But the last sentence "Thus it was deemed not fake news though it appeared not to be a stipulation of boarding a flight."....

If you read the article you will see that the translator is quite rightly confused by the AFN Center  on this, hence the differing vocabulary used.

It is a strange world we now live in with absolutely no clarity between government officials even though the new regulations were posted in the Gazette and the majority went into effect today the 1st of July.  Seems to me there are many confusions and the PM needs to make a State of the Country Address to lay it all out so everyone gets on the same page.  Those of us who want to wear the masks under certain scenarios are not to be called names by those whose moral compass points elsewhere.  Today on our morning rounds dropping off items to those we have adopted, was done sans mask, but we had them with us and when entering an area with large groups adorned them.  To say the least we were given some strange looks, but even then some of the vendors were maskless as well.

 

Sister and the family have made their flight arrangements and will arrive here at the end of July for a 2 week stay before school starts in the US.  They just flew to Brazil and back and no masks were required, but there were a few on the flights that wore them.  They of course carried them if they needed them.

I traveled to the UK fairly recently, went with Emirates and came back with Austrian Airlines.

With Emirates it was a condition of carriage to wear a mask throughout the flight, also a requirement in Dubai airport.

On the return journey, on boarding at Vienna everyone was told to put a mask on as it was a requirement of the Thai authorities that masks were worn throughout the flight.

Strange, I went back last month with Oman.  On the way there everyone was masked.  On the way back no one was masked, not even the crew, and hardly saw anyone in Muscat wearing one - not even airport staff.  When we landed in Bangkok they made an announcement that everyone needed to put a mask on to exit the plane.

Flew to Singapore a week ago and it is was fully masked on the way out and the way back.

There is enough news articles on people getting taken off flights for refusing to wear a face 😷 

Common sense should prevail 

I've watched some of those video's, it was obvious that most were nutters....🤪

Recently when flying back from the US, after the usual safety announcements including admonishment to wear a mask during the flight, a flight attendant quietly told me shortly after takeoff that it was not necessary to wear a mask in business class. Middle Eastern carrier.

Some people aka those with compromised immune systems (and there are lots of them) need all the protection they can get when out in public, such as masks. Don't be so so selfish and ill informed when deciding all those who wear masks are cowards, "Of course there will be those fragile creatures...that will never give up the perceived security of a mask and will ‘wear’ for time immemorial.."
