Weekly Review: Redefining Cancelled, Face Mask Requirements + More
It’s been another great week! And as we are starting every Sunday, I’m going to recap this week’s biggest stories and just those that caught our eye!
We had the chance to see the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds fly our house on Saturday, as they made their way around D.C. and Baltimore. If you’re looking for some cool footage, you can watch the cockpit cam from the Blue Angels pilot flying over NYC and Philadelphia.
- This week saw major changes for face mask requirements on some airplanes. Delta, American, Frontier, and United will now all require face masks for flying on various starting dates. American will actually provide the face masks to passengers. For a great comprehensive piece on airline requirements, be sure to check out Point Me To The Plane’s handy guide.
- Airlines are changing the definition of “cancelled” in an effort to deny refunds. Both American Airlines and United Airlines are recreating the term to help themselves.
- The world now has a new airport carrying the title of world’s busiest.
- Many people are defending airlines changing policies that harm consumers, claiming we should accept it since they are going through a difficult time. Traveling for Miles summed up that “idiotic” argument perfectly.
- Hong Kong International Airport is testing new equipment, including a full-body sanitizing station for passengers.
- Lastly, American Airlines announced significant losses in quarterly one.
So you hope you enjoyed this week’s roundup. And don’t forget to check face mask requirements if you plan to fly anytime soon!
