Clearing up some misconceptions on masks...

Correct.

Only correct if the N95 has an exhalation valve. The vast majority of N95 masks do not have exhalation vales. Whether they are "medical grade" or not, regular N95's will protect both the wearer and those around them better than a medial mask.

From a personal protection standpoint there is no reason to do this and it just increases breathing resistance, making things less comfortable. If you are concerned about the outside of your N95 mask becoming contaminated, then it might be a good reason to have the medical mask on top.

This why, the promotion of the useless N95 masks as well as any other "face covering" other than a medical masks makes no sense.
N95's are far from useless. They are superior to medical masks. (KN95's (except counterfeit ones) filter well but fit poorly - so their actual protection typically lies between the N95 and medical mask.

The Chinese re-opened sales of N95 masks but the ex-factory price now is about seven times as high as pre-pandemic - so yes they absolutely have figured out how to profit from the pandemic. Meanwhile 3M's price has stayed constant - if you can get them.

The minor variability in the CleanCare+ kits continues to amuse me. I did four segments yesterday, one of which had the kits loaded in YYC, the other three in YVR. All had the white mask and whitish/clear gloves, but two had the Krispy Kernels pretzels (one of the YYC kits and one of the YVR kits), while the others had the AC-branded pretzles, and one of the YVR kits had a blue-tinted water bottle. Same shape and packaging as the other AC-branded water bottles, just a bluish tint to the plastic.

4/4 on Bacti Control though!

yeah, a paper eco friendy bag for the headphones instead of the usual plastic or foil bag's from precovid. Different size water bottles back to the 250ml AC bottles we had precovid in addition to the 240ml's, have also got blue gloves also but mainly the whiteish clear.

Looks like a CR9? Bit odd that they would not feature a modern cabin in the mainline fleet

IG post from today

Blue-tinted water bottle at YYZ today. Mask is also folded in half and placed in the bag horizontally, rather than being placed vertically.

Okay I am definitely the only person who pays no attention the contents of the bag.

My bottle was clear and colorless, but I don't recall the label.

I have too much time on my hands. Plus, unlike a lot of you FOTSGs, I'm actually flying these days

The labels are the same, as is the shape, it's just the colour of the plastic that differs.

My kit this morning has a piece of tape across the top, so you can tell whether or not it has been opened.

OH EM GEE, guys! I'm so FOTSG I didn't notice the biggest change in yesterday's kits! Gloves are gone, replaced, it seems, by a 3rd wipe. Water bottle colour and pretzel brand remain variable.

I'm pretty sure someone behind the scenes is making random tweaks to the packets just to see the reaction on FT.
