  1. American Airlines just refused us wearing this mask on the plane . Could not argue with them any thoughts ?

      Ellen – we’re sorry to hear about your experiences while traveling. Unfortunately, whether a particular mask style will be allowed is often up to each individual working for an airline, theme park, or other location, and these individuals often decide based on a mask’s appearance, not its relative efficacy. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that individuals working for any airline will allow you to wear non-v2 styles of the SHEMA97 mask by HelmetFitting.com. As noted in our post here, we recommend our v2 styles (Black v2 and Pink v2) for air travel, as they feature an opaque (non-see-through) appearance.
