I was simply expelled from my trip for not wearing a veil. first time this has occurred. Not a government law. @AmericanAir staff remaining over me revealing to me it’s THE LAW. So much for “please regard the individuals who can not wear a veil”. At the point when I brought up this wasn’t a law I was evacuated.

Face veils have been utilized to alleviate the danger of spreading coronavirus during the pandemic.
While there is no government law ordering covers on US flights, all significant US carriers have been upholding face covering rules for travelers and team since mid-May.
On Monday, American Airlines reported “a more grounded approach for client face covers”. It said clients who wouldn’t wear face covers would not be permitted to board and could be restricted from future travel.
