All international passengers now have to wear masks

Seriously! When all domestic passengers have had to wear masks for months when there is no Covid in the community passengers on international Covid express flights with known Covid passengers on board have not had to wear masks onboard. Seriously!

Is there a better definition of reckless negligence?

NZ policy is that you've had to wear a mask since at least July... not sure if there's uniform enforcement but when I came home everyone was compliant.

Is it possible there may be a legal question on enforceability? Who has legal jurisdiction in international airspace?

Wouldn't come under the "comply with all onboard crew instructions" by which mandated by the country of aircraft registration.

Seems odd that it was required on the domestic COVID Express (AKL-ZQN), yet not on the real COVID Express from LAX-AKL...

If only had of managed our managed isolation hotels properly. In the last 24 hours Iíve learn that the main tool that New Zealand is using to fight covid-19 is marketing and people responding to marketing.

I feel sorry for the NZ crew that will now take another it.
