Personally I think as things settle down, masks might almost become like seat belts: used for takeoff and landing but you can take them off in flight as the HEPA air filters start to kick in.
Masks are definitely flavour of the month at the moment and seem to be providing the more cautious with some sense of security. Personally I think it's probably pointless theatre, but I recognise I'm outnumbered and the masks are here to stay for a while.

I am interested to see, however, how long it lasts and which carriers will be the first to break ranks (and how that affects their trade).
