There may be other limited exceptions for a Guest with a disability recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) who meet certain criteria.’

‘Face coverings may be removed only while eating, drinking, or taking medication — when done eating, drinking, or taking medication, face coverings must be repositioned immediately,’ the airline’s policy reads.

One crew member approached the pregnant mother to tell them they were being non-compliant because of the mask and the pilot demanded for the family to leave the plane.
