    How can you trust AA when they resumed the boeing 737 to receive passengers in August? They'll say whatever to make money even though they will still endanger lives.

    There are reports that it only takes 14 virus particles to infect someone. So what is 0.003% of the virus load breathed out. Is it igreater than 14? It is easy to lie with statistics, simply by avoiding absolute numbers. When CEO wants to make his pay rise look small, he uses a percentage, in absolute terms his pay increase might be more than the average yearly wage.

    Regardless of the air circulation over each seat, look back at any video of smoke in the aircraft and that is your field of transmission. The hepa filters are not effective, else the particulates of smoke would not be seen in the cabin. Stop fooling yourselves into thinking you're going to be safe. Not one variable was tested and this alone invalidates the test as unreliable. The airlines are going belly up with no bailout in site. That's why this was done, for passenger emplanement.

    Who really cares if the flight is safe or not right now? Where are we allowed to go? What are we going to do when we get there? Unless you are traveling for work there is really no reason to travel right now and with unemployment rates so high I doubt many can afford it.

    It works only and only if EVERYBODY uses a right mask and wears it properly. During flights, I see many people eat, drink, and talk without masks.

    During the pandemic, all flights lasting 5 hours or less, should ban food and drinks. Passengers should eat and drink before boarding. Therefore, they can't have excuses to take off their masks.

    I can't believe that WHO initially prohibited people from wearing a mask. Too much emphasis on social distance, which is actually more risky. What is the scientific perspective as they say

    80% will feel nothing. 18% will have mild to severe symptoms. 1-1/2 to 2% will pay the bill. Do the math. Wake up, sheep.

    Does anyone actually believe this? Executives are paid to paint the company and its services in the best light for investors. He’s not a doctor. Don’t listen to him. Talk to your doctor about these kinds of issues. They have a medical degree education for a reason.

    It’s still 0.003% too high

    The fake news pushing lies so the airlines no longer suffer. Pathetic and weak. I'm sure ABC News took plenty of handouts from the airlines.

    This is irresponsible journalism. The 95% of consumers who internalize the headline and not the full story are going to behave less safely as if this is experimental study is proven fact and you know it. Do better.

    The media and politicians are terrorists and they're paving the road to hell on earth with good intentions and most of you are oblivious to what's really going on.

    We are being played by big pharma, the media (GE, News-Corp, Disney, Viacom/CBS, Time Warner Media), politicians (left AND right), NGOs/non-governmental organizations (The Council on Foreign Relations, UN, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Club of Rome, Royal Institute of International Affairs) & elitist tax exempt foundations (The Bill & Malinda Gates Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, etc.)

    Whether this virus is real or not does not matter! They are clearly using it to turn us against each other (Divide & Conquer) and push elitist agendas (global fascist dictatorship, technocracy, mandatory vaccinations, vaccination certifications, immunity passports, total police state surveillance & control system, etc.)

    The job of the establishment media is to deceive, divide, and distract! There are no legitimate journalists on TV!
    If you think you're too smart to be fooled. If you get off on virtue signaling, cult of personality worshipping, appealing to authority and the establishment media AND you're too dumb and/or brainwashed by academia and the media to see giant contradictions and obvious agendas, may your chains and your family's chains rest lightly upon you.

    It's time to stop believing everyone that questions the establishment is a "conspiracy theorists" and wake up!!! We are losing our freedom right now! They are ushering in tyranny under the guise of public safety all over the world! This is not a conspiracy theory! It is happening right now! If America falls it's over for the rest of the world. Which side of history are you gonna be on? I choose dangerous freedom over tyrannical "safety"!

    (includes people with core morbidities)

    • 0-19 YEARS: 99.997%
    • 20-49 YEARS: 99.98%
    • 50-69 YEARS: 99.5%
    • 70+ YEARS: 94.6%

    There is no EMERGENCY and there is no PANDEMIC! There is ZERO justification for continuing these extreme measures! If you believe there is, it's because you've been brainwashed by the media!


    The left and right dog and pony show can't agree on anything that truly benefits we the people! However, what do you know, both sides want you wearing a face diaper! Both sides want you to socially distance! BOTH SIDES WANT TO FORCE YOU TO TAKE A COVID19 TEST OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND INJECT YOU WITH BIG PHARMA'S EXPERIMENTAL VACCINE AND ALL ITS BOOSTERS OVER AND OVER!!!

    You people buying this scamdemic are the absolute dumbest people on the planet hands down. The road to hell on earth is being paved with good intentions and your minds are so entrenched in the left right dog and pony show and appealing to authority and the media you can't even see it! May your chains and your family's chains rest lightly upon you.

    Wonder how much Boeing paid for this research?😂👎

    Well, it is coming from the airlines, so I'd take it with a grain of salt, but it looks promising. I wonder why they didn't go over the data for the mannequin without a mask. That would have been interesting.

    Altogether, hopefully we see more studies in a good direction. Masks seem to work despite what Trump is saying.
