ER Editor: It’s linked to below, but this is the Twitter thread containing several related posts about the four BA pilots.
News about Spain and Russia allegedly prohibiting the vaccinated from air travel has been going the rounds, so we’ve had to dig to find these sources. We haven’t so far found the SkyNews.au broadcast. Economist Martin Armstrong of HoweStreet.com has linked to such a story in the German press (here), yet from France we are not able to view several of the links within this article because we are automatically redirected elsewhere each time. This can happen with controversial sites or stories.
These are the links we ARE able to open from this article, one Spanish and one Russian. From the translations, we don’t see flying expressly prohibited for the vaccinated so far, just NOT recommended because of the increased risk of clotting, although prohibition seems a possibility.
First the Spanish site from June 4:
Airlines tackle clot problem, with recommendations against travel for vaccinated individuals
Editor June 4, 2021
The world’s major airlines are discussing whether it is advisable to admit vaccinated customers, because of the risk of blood clots they run as a result of the experimental mRNA serum. The policy has been for many years that people with an increased risk of blood clots could only fly under strict supervision.
Clots incompatible with flying
It is recommended that these people should not fly unless they are in a life-threatening situation, as at a certain altitude, people who have been inoculated are at risk of complications such as stroke, thrombosis or heart attack if they are sensitive to it.
There are several reports that warn that those who receive the injection (regardless of the brand) may have clotting and bleeding problems as one of the main reactions. All these reactions are similar to the restrictions that have been in place for years on passenger air travel.
In fact, in March of this year, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) recommended pilots to quarantine for at least two days before boarding after vaccination.
Flight personnel locked up
But vaccination does not end the obligation imposed on flight crews in many countries. They must lock themselves in their hotel room immediately upon arrival. In most cases, they are not allowed to leave the airport at all.
In late January, there was an uproar when the Dutch government instituted a mandatory coronavirus double “screening” test for pilots and cabin crew flying to the Netherlands, as well as for travelers. That meant that a crew member would have to stay abroad if he or she tested positive.
Faced with this, KLM threatened to cancel all flights with overnight stays, eventually relaxing the testing obligation.
And the Russian site from June 1:
Those vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus could be banned from flying
Air travel could be dangerous for these citizens.
Those vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus may be banned from flying on airplanes
Physician Evgeny Kovalev told Public News Service that travel on airplanes can be dangerous for those who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
A large-scale vaccination against COVID-19 is now underway in Russia. Contrary to all fears and statements by Western “experts,” a large number of Russians want to be vaccinated. However, as it turns out, citizens who have been vaccinated may face restrictions due to health problems.
Europe is already discussing the possibility of restricting air travel to those who have been vaccinated. The fact is that coronavirus vaccines affect the function that is related to blood clotting. This increases the risk of thrombosis. When flying by air, people are not in the most comfortable position for a long time, and this aggravates the situation, Kovalev explained.
He added that medics have even coined a special term “traveling thrombosis,” which just means a long stay in the chair in one position. Such posture contributes to vein compression. According to doctors, thrombosis protects a person from a large loss of blood. It is considered to be a quite normal process, but its failure may lead to irreversible consequences.
That is why Kovalev advised travelers after vaccination to fly only in loose clothing that does not restrict movement. In addition, citizens of the risk group need to drink more water.
Earlier Gennady Onishchenko, Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, former Chief Sanitary Doctor of the Russian Federation and State Duma deputy, stated that voluntary vaccination does not cancel the existence of professions that must be vaccinated and this can potentially become a condition for their employment.
Martin Armstrong has some intelligent speculation on the matter:
We are starting to come full circle. Now airlines in Spain and Russia are warning people who have been vaccinated should not travel. Indeed, COVID-19 vaccinated people can be excluded from air travel! That was the headline of a Russian online news portal. There are a number of news articles coming out a warning that vaccinated people may not be allowed to travel because of the danger of blood clots in the mile-high atmosphere. In Spain, the same thing is appearing. This has raised concerns that are the objectives of this vaccine to prevent travel?
Even the American CDC has on their site a warning about blood clots when traveling more than 4 hours on airplanes.
More than 300 million people travel on long-distance flights (generally more than four hours) each year.1 Blood clots, also called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), can be a serious risk for some long-distance travelers. Most information about blood clots and long-distance travel comes from information that has been gathered about air travel. However, anyone traveling more than four hours, whether by air, car, bus, or train, can be at risk for blood clots.
This has caused many to wonder if you are at higher risk of blood clots that can cause death if you travel internationally and thus this was one of the objectives – to end air travel by increasing the risk of flying high. If you are COVID-19 vaccinated, many got vaccinated so they could travel and this leads to people wondering if this was a specific objective.
4 British Airways Pilots DEAD Following COVID-19 Injections While Spain and Russia Prohibit “Vaccinated” From Air Travel
Here is the recording (let us know if Twitter takes it down as we have a copy.)
This brought out the usual corporate media “fact-checkers” to try and debunk the man’s claims.
Reuters responded with a “fact-check,” but in their own investigation and report, they confirmed that not only did these three die, but a fourth one as well.
They gave the usual corporate media response by quoting some health “authorities” who categorically stated that their deaths had “nothing to do” with the shots, while not denying that they died, nor giving any other explanation for their deaths.
Shared in the form of a voice recording on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, an unidentified male says he has spoken to a “friend who’s a BA pilot” and explains “things are getting crazy” after three fellow pilots passed away (here, here and here (ER: the last link is to a Twitter post that’s been taken down).
“They’ve had the third BA pilot die in the last seven days, yeah? Third pilot dead in the last week,” says the man heard in the recording. “The first two guys were in their forties and fifties; this guy, mid-thirties, perfectly fit, no underlying conditions. He gets his second jab and he’s dead within days, exactly the same with the first two.
“Because of this, BA are now in crisis talks with the government about whether to allow vaccinated pilots to fly. The issue with that of course is that about 80%, according to my friend in BA, 80-85% have been injected.”
The man then goes on to say only “10% of pilots will be able to fly,” branding it a “serious issue”.
Reuters presented the claims to British Airways, which said they were unfounded and that no such talks were underway with the government.
The spokesperson, however, confirmed the authenticity of the four condolence books, as four company pilots had recently passed away.
“Our thoughts are with their family and friends,” they said, adding that none of the deaths was linked to vaccines.
In a statement to Reuters, the UK’s Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) also denied any such crisis talks with Britain’s flagship air carrier.
“We have not been made aware of deaths of BA pilots after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine and have not had discussions with BA or other airlines, about preventing pilots from flying after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Sarah Branch, the director of vigilance and risk management of medicines for the MHRA. “There are currently no restrictions on aviation or other industries and activities post vaccination.” (Source -Emphasis added.)
Meanwhile, Sky News out of Australia is reporting that airline companies in Spain and Russia are warning COVID-19 “vaccinated” people not to travel because of the risk of blood clots.
