It's a bit off topic but I've noticed that too. "Mask on the chin" look seems to be very fashionable among Qantas and Air New Zealand crew alike :mad:

Just a shout out to our moderators- that was an impressively quick and reasonable move to split this discussion off the priority boarding thread! 👍

What happens if the discussion turns into hygiene in the priority boarding queue, where do I post then?

I don't get the whole mask-wearing things in airport terminals given it's not done in NZ and arguably it's no different to a big-box shopping centre. Strangely enough, we survived through all last year through to January this year with no masks on planes and the risk was much greater back then.

As a side point who is meant to enforce the mask wearing/hygine? If it's the crew and the crew doesn't care then it doesn't get enforced. How about check-in staff in an airport?

My last couple of flights, the crew in the biz cabin have been pretty spot on with mask wearing.

I also saw a QF flight attendant with the clear face shield, although the others on the flight had standard face masks.

This- on a recent intra-NT flight the CSM had the face shield and no mask; the other cabin crew all had masks only. I didn’t ask.

They aren't.
Definitely no exemptions TI?

Rex and VA ground crew not wearing masks in SYD again this week. The budget terminal in Sydney seems to be a hot spot for optional mask wearing!

Haha- I love that you call it “budget terminal” as that pretty much describes the riff raff there. No surprise at all about the mask wearing being taken a “bit less seriously” there.

Just beware, some Virgin fanboys might not like that term 😅

I wouldn't say it's just a specific terminal. Most of the staff in the SYD QF J lounge had their masks under their nose last week.

The politics of needing to be seen to be "doing something" - the fact that this then riles people up into tribalised groups, then all the better...
