Thank you for dropping the mask mandate

New Arrival

Thank you for dropping your mask mandate.  I saw Congressman Chip Roy of Tx on your plane not wearing a mask and talking to passengers on the plane without mask and he was allowed to do so. If he doesnt have to and no one says anything then I dont have to. 

THANK YOU SOUTHWEST for recognizing our freedoms and rights and I look forward to taking my Southwest flight from Tampa next week NO MASK.... if congressmen can go without mask .. then I can to.  Thank Southwest!!

The issue isn't about someone breaking the rules; it's about the rules not being enforced.  Without enforcement, there are effectively no rules and others can feel free to behave accordingly.

I will say that it's humorous that people with power (government officials, celebrities, etc.) can get away with not wearing masks when required, but we regular folk cannot. Why isn't this congressman put on the no flying list like so many others have been over the past year? It's hypocrisy at its finest.


That aside, masks are still required to be worn on airplanes until September, but considering how fast the rules are changing, I wouldn't be surprised if this changes too, and fast.
