I understand.. but.. my mask has a pocket inside that holds charcoal pouches that I must breath through in and out..

The cheap masks dont fo anything but allow breath to openly be expelled.. but I get it..

TMI and unrelated, but, are the charcoal pouches considered "exhaust valves"?

Bad and lethal idea. How are passengers with medical conditions supposed to breathe?

if you are needing a mask,just d a little research as to what is acceptabel,what (as recommended ) has 3 ply,and the like..there are many differing kinds without the "vent"..

Many medical masks have exhaust valves that are filtered..but American doesn't know the difference'

So no masks that have an exhaust valve at all? And American comes up with another not thought out idea.
Hey, CDC and American Airlines..there are masks out there, with exhaust valves, that have filtration systems built in. Didn't think of that 1 with the blanket statement: "Not allowed:
Face coverings with exhaust valves." did you.

This whole thing has devolved into a panic, and it's not going to let up before November. Don't expect rational decisions from any corporation.
