Executive Orders are Not Laws

I thought I would educate you on the "federal law" you cite as justification for your mask policy.

"Are Executive Orders Law? The Short Answer: No, they are not in and of themselves law. The Middle Answer: Executive Orders may carry the "weight of law," but only insofar as...

2. The orders themselves DO NOT VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION itself or any local, state, or federal statute which lawfully derives its authority from the Constitution."

I am sure this will fall on deaf ears, but I will not be using your airline unless/until you rescind your ridiculous mask mandate.
