But let’s be honest, if I’m flying first class on Qatar, I’ll wear it! Look at this beautiful plane! While most airlines are requiring you to wear a face mask to fly, one carrier is going further. Qatar Airways is making passengers wear a face shield in addition to a mask. The airline will supply flyers with a shield, mask, glove, and hand sanitizer in an amenity kit as they board the flight.
Onboard, all passengers will be provided with a complimentary protective kit, which will include a single-use surgical face mask, large disposable powder-free gloves and an alcohol-based hand sanitiser gel.#QatarAirways https://t.co/YYilQAXNHy pic.twitter.com/ox2vBwZfVV

Passengers in economy class will have to wear the mask and shield at all times except for eating or drinking. Business-class passengers will have the option to wear the shield because the seats are spaced apart better. Would you wear a mask and shield on a flight if it was offered to you?
