Face masks have become commonplace on airplanes — and are here to stay for quite a while — but not every airline allows every kind of mask.

The woman was not happy many of the passengers were wearing only cloth masks and would not stop making videos of her surroundings.
This is the same woman that recently posted to Twitter how she started divorce paperwork with her husband because he took their kids from lockdown to go have a bite of food.

As of last month, the FAA had documented 5,114 reports of unruly passengers and 3,710 reports of refusing to wear masks this year. It said 239 cases led to penalties.
To curb what it has described as a dramatic increase in unruly or dangerous behavior aboard passenger airplanes, the FAA released a public service announcement in August with a simple message: “Unruly behavior doesn’t fly.
