In September my wife and I flew to Barcelona to take our first cruise in almost two years. Chris put up a quick post with some of the videos of the two cabins we were in as well as a tour of the Epic Haven deck that is my absolute favorite space on any NCL ship.
We started our trip from our hometown airport SBN / South Bend connecting in DTW Detroit and lastly in JFK New York. Our first hop was uneventful. But on the next flight…
This guy. I mean dude – really? Here we are taking our 1st international flight in forever and doing everything we can NOT to get COVID and this guy does this.
I mean he had his mask either under his nose or off for more of the flight than he had it on. The only time he put it on was when the flight attendant walked by.
Now it is not like he was eating or drinking the whole time, but just did not want to wear the mask correctly. Considering the fact that if we got COVID we would not be allowed on our two week Mediterranean cruise I was more than a little bit put-off by “Mr. Karen” himself.
But what could I do? What would you have done?
- I could have asked the guy to please wear his mask properly, but the way folks are so short fused when flying I did not want to have an incident destroy my first trip in forever.
- I could have alerted the FA, quietly, that the dude was not wearing his mask correctly, but once again did I want an incident and maybe end up with something escalating and diverting (or worse)?
- I chose option 3 and pushed my vent in his direction and made sure my N95 was as snug as I could and just stewed about it both during the flight and after for a bit.
We have been doing the “mask thing” for two years now. We know how it works. But I have found, at least in Delta 1st class, that mask enforcement is just so-so (mainline as well as regional jets).
My question is what would you have done? Does it bug you when folks do not follow the mask rules? Have you complained when another passenger is not wearing their mask correctly? Let me know! – René
