A citizen reporter flying from Dillingham to Anchorage on Alaska Airlines/Horizon Flight 2211 on Sunday documented the crew not wearing masks during portions of the flight, in defiance of company rules and federal laws.
While going over the safety protocols during preflight routines, the flight attendant is identified as “Karen,” and she is a free-breather who doesn’t even have her mask around her chin, as shown in the video. Passengers are required to wear masks on the airlines unless they are eating, and then must replace their mask after every bite.
The pilot also had his mask off of his nose and mouth; his mask was around his chin.
Last week, Sen. Lora Reinbold was banned from Alaska Airlines flights over her refusal to wear her face mask properly. It’s unclear how long she will not be welcome as a passenger but Must Read Alaska sources say she has been banned for 30 days.
The citizen reporter, who asked to remain anonymous so she would not be banned from Alaska Airlines flights, commented, “Either masks work, or masks are just a power grab from the corporate elite and CDC. This video proves that it is nothing but a power grab.”
