Imagine you are a flight attendant on a flight from Seattle to Frankfurt, Germany and one of your passengers looks like this.
What comes to your mind?
Does she have a serious lung condition or a heart problem? Is it dangerous? Does she need special care on this long flight?
People's minds can play tricky games.
When I am flying wearing my HumidiFlyer face mask, I usually get looks full of concern. I tell the stewards not to worry, I am perfectly healthy and not on my way to a hospital, but to sing concerts on the other side of the Atlantic. Is it a disease to be a classical singer? I smile and I have to admit, it looks a bit scary.
But I am perfectly fine and more than grateful to use this special face mask in planes where vocal folds dry out easily.
It's all about great singing!
