Passengers aboard airliners celebrated Monday after the TSA said it would no longer enforce federal mask mandates aboard flights and at airports following a Florida district court judge’s ruling.

Footage going viral on social media shows passengers aboard a Delta Airline flight celebrating after the pilot stepped into the cabin to personally make the announcement.

William LeGate, who filmed and posted the video to Twitter, said flight attendants gave free drinks to customers in celebration of the masks coming off.

A person on another Delta flight filmed their flight attendant giving passengers the happy news, with customers giving a similar reaction.

Alaska Air passengers also cheered after their pilot announced masks were now optional.

An Allegiant Airline flight attendant was also filmed telling customers masks were no longer mandated.

By Monday evening United, Alaska, American, Delta and Southwest Airlines had all made masks optional; CEOs for all five airlines had penned a joint letter last month requesting an end to the mandates based on high vaccinations rates and low infection, death and hospitalization rates.
