Is there a key flaw in face masks on airplanes?

The only way this would seem to work is if they simply do not serve beverages during the pandemic, regardless of how long the flight is.

If they do, then you cannot drink the beverage without removing your mask, and that would be plenty of time to spread the virus to people in your vicinity, in the event you have it but don't know it.

    Regret to inform you there is no guaranteed 100% safe way.

    As meal and drink service has been reduced or eliminated on many flights to reduce the risk of spreading viruses not an issue you need to worry about. .

    Masks are just one item of a list of things to reduce the spread.

    I have served many costumed individuals for years at Halloween parties wearing masks.

    They all kept their masks on and drank using a straw.

    Perhaps the answer would be to give everyone a straw so they can drink while keeping their mask on!
