So does UPS. Boxes don't care, and nobodies awake to be offended by your beard anyway.

Well groomed, professional appearance, of men, wearing conventional styles is consistent with the spirit & intent of current business standards including policy for global airline crews. Limit testers, pigs and scraggly patch presenters are the issue. Unenforceable codes mean none at all. If you happen to click, note the economy of dialogue between the Skip & Masterís Mate. Thereís your Army of one. https://youtu.be/FVEiScxUQyY

Unprofessional looking to boot.
Hahaha, a speckle of facial hair is the least of your concerns if you really had to use the O2.

New uniform rollout. Maybe it's more nautical and complementary of beards?

Nice. A good improvement in my opinion. Hope more airlines follow suit.

Is that a question, or a statement?

Should pilots be allowed to go naked? What about wearing a ku klux klan outfit? Grizzly Adams beard, or how about the ZZ-top look? Tattoos all over the face? Metal in the lips and nose and eyelids, and maybe a safety pin or two? How about a mohawk?

Wear anything, you say?
