So what happened to the mantra "it's extremely unlikely you will get infected in an aircraft" at the very beginning of the pandemic.

Whatever has caused them to change their point of view, for sure we know tons more about the virus since the very beginning of the pandemic. We know what causes it and better ways to treat it and ameliorate its effects.

So 4 infectious people in an aircraft was previously ok but 1 infectious delta person is not. Yeah that makes sense.

What doesn't make sense is your view that policy formed early in the pandemic based on information available then should be adhered to now regardless of what we've learned in the meantime.

Doesn't seem to be adhered to by Dictator Dan - "The curfew worked last year......."

They won’t be on their own. I see a wave of business following them now it’s a bit clearer on the legality’s.

Class action inbound.
This is not a pandemic.
Something much more sinister going on.

Well if that’s the case your class action won’t have much chance of success will it 🙄

Just don't be a coward and get the vaccine. It's only a little needle.

A very sensible move. Which responsible intelligent airline staff would object?. Vaccination is the only solution to get mass travel moving again.
Such a mandate not necessary here in the UK as it is regarded as a common sense normal safety requirement, and staff already complying.

The UK, and everywhere else in the world, before some gullible people started making important decisions based completely on baseless statements made by anonymous, irresponsible individuals on the internet.

What started out as stupid, even humorous “conspiracy theories” is now being described as “radicalised by online cults”.
”Don’t listen to reason, your friends, the evil mainstream media, the elected government, science or medical professionals! Listen to me!!”

Makes one want to travel to the edge of the Earth, and jump off.

Very dangerous future, as opposed to not being vaccinated. There are some right moon howlers on this thread, Clive Palmer is missing a few sheep.
