Airline CEO of American Airlines celebrated a $14 million deal to buy masks and other life-saving equipment for airline staff, but couldn’t comment on the company’s plans for additional purchases.

The “do you have to wear a mask on a plane in california” is a question that has been asked many times. The answer is no, but the airport CEO edition masks are designed for the most germ-phobic of travelers.

To be sure, the departures board has a real-time indication for how busy the Sky Club is, and the departures board has a real-time sign for how busy the Sky Club is. It says’somewhat busy’ here. Perhaps that’s done to frighten you away and prevent the club from filling up.

The club, like the United Club and Star Alliance lounge nearby, features an outside deck.

I’m a huge aviation fan, and the @Delta Sky Deck at the new LAX Sky Club is just incredible.

T2 and T3, LAX’s northern runways, and even the Hollywood Hills in the distance are all visible from here.

However, there was something unusual about the occasion. According to federal standards, the audience was well-masked. Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles and Delta CEO Ed Bastian? Not at all.

Masks-For-Thee-But-Not-For-Me-Airline-Airport Delta is to thank for this.

This wasn’t a blip on the screen for a snapshot. Inside the airport, where masks are prohibited by federal regulations, the airport itself tweets out the Mayor’s maskless address. The Mayor makes the following observations on other people’s masks:

And here’s the airport’s CEO speaking without a mask, which the airport has tweeted out.

‘Yet he’s speaking,’ you may argue, but that’s precisely when he’s releasing the most respiratory aerosols.

I’m writing this while wearing a mask aboard a plane, where the captain informed that the mask requirement is still in place and that everyone should follow it. The CEO of Delta, the Mayor of Los Angeles, and the CEO of Los Angeles World Airports are not among them.
