Covid-19: Dr Siouxsie Wiles criticises Air NZ for letting people remove masks
Interesting that the airline and its cronnies are perfectly happy to put us all at risk with a 20-50% increase in frequency in events like that at the Pullman Hotel recently.
Yeah an outburst on Twitter from Dr Wiles, in which she’s already had to apologise and retract her inaccuracies, is hardly a ringing endorsement of your position. If MoH aren’t happy with food and beverage being served during level 1 they can demand a change. They haven’t.

For anyone following my rant: I'd like to apologise to @FlyAirNZ for saying they funded the Plan B academics. I got it wrong. Someone on their payroll hooked up with the Plan B lot to do work funded by Auckland International Airport. It may be that AirNZ didn't know. #COVID19nz

If MoH aren’t happy with food and beverage being served during level 1 they can demand a change. They haven’t.

It takes time little one

Agreed. It will be interesting to revisit this thread at the beginning of 2022, and see what has actually eventuated.

Sure. If you make policy decisions based on a social media outcry.

I'll certainly feel very reassured should food/beverage be banned in flight, as people fly around to concerts such as One Love. 20,000 in close proximity, not a face mask in sight, but the real threat here is removing a face mask momentarily while you have a drink.

If MoH announce increased mask restrictions, exclusively to air travel, we'll be left in doubt that we're being governed via Stuff polls and little reasoning.

cough, oops can't use that prompt
I see food and beverage are stopped from being served from this evening on Air NZ domestic for a short while to start, though while still because of covid its more due to being careful about contamination. Though the person wasn't involved with the food prep.

Ministry of Health had no idea Air NZ's highest-risk crew were staying in Auckland CBD hotel
Gawd, one is becoming as bad as the other.
The secret CBD stays come after a debacle where Air New Zealand told high-risk crew that they could leave the airline's new dedicated quarantine hotel - the Grand Windsor in downtown Auckland - to exercise.

"That clearly imposes risk of transmission," University of Otago epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker told Newshub.

The Ministry of Health thought the same. It scrambled to change its guidelines to stop crew leaving.

But the change to the guidelines came after the secret stays at the Ramada. Air New Zealand's assured the Ministry it didn't let crew staying there out to exercise but it wouldn't explain the two sets of rules for the two central city hotels.

Air New Zealand plane was not deep cleaned following MIQ charter flight
Air New Zealand has admitted a plane carrying international returnees then picked up domestic passengers before being deep cleaned.

“Which promptly led to the deaths of over 9000 people”. Quoted from stuff.co.nz, 11th of March 2021 (probably.....)

Corn chips - luxury. The only thing I have ever been offered on an AirNZ flight was a boiled sweet and a plastic beaker of water served from a bottle cradled in the CC's armpit. Perhaps I need to take longer trips.
