Before and after

 

 
ちょうど他の3つの航空会社もマスク着用を義務化するようです。ロイター記事から。
 
REUTERS MAY 1, 2020
WASHINGTON – Three of the largest four U.S. airlines said Thursday they will require passengers to wear facial coverings on U.S. flights, joining JetBlue Airways Corp. in taking the step to address the spread of coronavirus and convince reluctant passengers to resume flying.
 
United Airlines, Delta Air Lines Inc. and American Airlines Group Inc., along with the smaller Frontier Airlines, which is owned by private equity firm Indigo Partners LLC, announced they will require facial coverings next month.
 
この施策の導入の背景には組合と議員からの働きかけがあったからだとか。
Some airline unions and U.S. lawmakers have urged the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to require facial coverings for all passengers and crew.

ちょうど数日前に3社のウエブページを取り上げていたこともありますので、どのように文言が変わったのか見てみます。英語学習の観点だと漠然と精読の重要性を語られるに過ぎませんが、「マスク着用は義務か?」「義務だとしたらいつからか?」「マスクがない場合はどうすればいいか?」の観点から読んでみてください。
 
UnitedのBefore
In coordination with the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) — we are the first major U.S. carrier to require that all flight attendants wear a face covering or mask to help protect themselves and customers on board our aircraft. Beginning in early May, we will make face masks available to our customers as well. This new initiative is in line with the most recent CDC recommendation that says wearing a cloth face covering is advisable when in public and when social distancing is difficult to maintain.
 
UnitedのAfter
1文目は同じですが、2文目はマスクをする職員の種類が増やすことを通知しています。搭乗客についてはWe will also make face coverings mandatory for all travelersとして、マスクがなくてもand will be providing them for free to our customers starting May 4とマスクを無料で提供することも伝えています。
 
In coordination with the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) — we were the first major U.S. carrier to require that all flight attendants wear a facial covering to help protect themselves and customers on board our aircraft. Effective May 4 we will expand that mandate to include all of our employees on board — including front-line workers like pilots, customer service agents and ramp workers when on board an aircraft, along with any other United employees traveling. We will also make face coverings mandatory for all travelers and will be providing them for free to our customers starting May 4.
 
American航空が搭乗客への義務付けを始めるのは5月11日からみたいですが、それまでもWe strongly encourage you to wear a face coveringとマスク着用を強く推奨しています。
 
AmericanのBefore
American doesn’t require you to wear a face covering, but we encourage it. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for recommendations on face coverings to bring with you and use during your trip.
 
AmericanのAfter
We strongly encourage you to wear a face covering while flying on American, and starting May 11, it will be required. You also may be required by local law to wear one in the airport where your trip begins, where it ends or where you connect.
 
American航空もUnitedと同じく搭乗客に対してマスクなどを配布するとしていますが、as supplies and conditions allow,と在庫がある限りとの条件をつけています。
 
Also, starting in early May 2020, and as supplies and conditions allow, we'll begin to offer sanitizing wipes and face masks to our customers.
 
Deltaもall Delta customers and employees will be required to wear a face maskと義務であることを伝えていますが、同時にこれまで通りwe continue to ask customers to bring their own face coveringとマスク持参を呼びかけています。もちろんマスクがない客向けにsupplies will be available for customersとも述べています。
 
DeltaのBefore
We ask you to help us support healthy flying for everyone by bringing your own mask from home and to review your local orders for any additional travel guidelines.
 
DeltaのAfter
Face Masks Required for Everyone's Safety
Beginning May 4th, all Delta customers and employees will be required to wear a face mask, or appropriate face covering over their nose and mouth throughout their travel, aligning with best practice guidelines from the CDC. And while we continue to ask customers to bring their own face covering for travel with Delta, supplies will be available for customers who need them.
 
Reuterの記事では以下のように無料でマスクを配布するのはUnited航空しか言及していません。
 
United said it will provide complimentary masks to passengers. Southwest Airlines Co., one of the largest U.S. airlines, has not required facial coverings.
 
3社のサイトを丁寧に読んでみると3社ともマスクのない搭乗客にはマスクを提供してくれる感じですよね。最後に冒頭であげたポイントを整理して終わりにします。

「マスク着用は義務か?」  3社とも義務
「義務だとしたらいつからか?」 UnitedとDeltaが5月4日から。Americanは5月11日から
「マスクがない場合はどうすればいいか?」 3社とも配布
