Escape from Prison Island
My entire family is banned from Air New Zealand for one year after we "displayed a high level of disobedience" with their facemask policy on a trans-Tasman flight in May. It is an ironic punishment, where the airline suffers, not me. I mightn't fly with Air New Zealand for a much longer period than this, perhaps ever again. The crew chief, a homosexual with too much attitude, repeatedly harassed my wife for not wearing a facemask properly while holding our baby on her lap, even after the over-tired baby destroyed five masks. Another child of ours had motion sickness. I asked him multiple times to go away and let me handle the situation, but he refused to leave, threatened us with a $3000 fine, told us that eight other passengers had complained about us wearing facemasks improperly. This was all bluster and lies, the other passengers around us were engrossed in the in-flight entertainment and paying no attention. It would be unthinkable for a crew member on Singapore Airlines or Emirates to behave like this, why choose to fly Air New Zealand?
When you went through with TIC Bali, did they ask you for an international vaccine certificate? I have presented my exemption but they have said I would need to have it checked by a health officer? Feeling a bit worried!
I live in Aus and am unjabbed. Emailed my GP one day, said I'm in the US and just got jabbed and want it in the Aussie system. Asked if I can send pic of vax card and would that suffice? He said yes.
I printed the American CDC card onto a reg piece of white paper, filled it in, took a pic, sent it to him and I was in the Aussie system 24 hours and $50 later.
How stupid of them to require a kool-aid exemption to,avoid quarantine. Didn’t they get the memo that the damn injection does not stop transmission?
