Hearing that beards will shortly be no longer at NAA? Group policy above FL250! How backwards when the competitor allows them…

So what? Since when is the competitor the standard of excellence?

Perhaps you can negotiate a razor allowance in your next eba.

What's the significance of FL250?

Drop down O2 and the DHC-8 ceiling. Don’t know if the Dash-8 has quick-donning masks which apparently don’t seal well against beards. When I started we were advised not to wax our 70’s moustaches lest we have a spontaneous facial combustion in the mask.

Should have said - "What's the significance of aboveFL250?"

As I understand it, crew have to be on oxygen above FL140 (or is it 10,000' - my memory is hazy) in the event of a depressurisation.

If the beard banning policy is "above FL250", why are things different if a crew is wearing oxygen below FL250 down to where it can be ditched?

Too funny. I hear it every year at EPs, then I point out oxygen is a non flammable gas, tumbleweeds.
