Thumbs down Mask Narking

Mask-less flight crews are severely getting nark'd on to company. If you even think about opening the cockpit door without a mask you are doomed. Welcome to the "new normal".

Counterpoint- if you’re required to be wearing a mask anytime the door is open, wear it.

Or, you know, just do what the people signing your paychecks ask you to do unless it goes against the regs or is causing a safety issue.

Agreed. Could you imagine the ramifications if some pax gets it & could trace it to a flight crew. Media & lawyers would have a field day. So not worth it.

Impossible to trace it to who/where you got it from, but your point is noted

Not to mention the optics of this are obviously very important to our mainline partner, or they wouldn’t have sent out two announcements, emails, etc about it.

Thats nothing . Last week a buddy of mine was commuting to work on UA.
He was spotted in the gate area, off to the side , talking with another pilot , of which neither had a mask on . They put it on to board the plane obviously, but someone from UA got a video clip of them without their mask and sent it to Binns. They both got a call from JA and MP also I believe.
Unreal
so yes the mask nazis are alive and well .Almost as bad as whiskey used to be about the dam hat .

Question

The unions will protect pilots from this nonsense, right?
