2 weeks ago I flew GRU
's 777. It was an amazing flight, the 777 is an amazing aircraft.
While pushback, they started saying in portuguese something about applying Mexican sanitary measures before the flight took off. All of a sudden I heard this spray noise going at the rare of the cabin and then 4 FA
's appeared with 2 bottles of some kind of disinfectant that were being emptied while they walked with them to the front of the aircraft.
Then we had this huge cloud of this thing in the air and people started coughing and covering their faces. As I saw that the lady besides me and I took a pillow and pushed it towards our face in order to avoid that. I use contact lenses, so I had my eyes all irritated for around one hour of the flight.
After the FA
passed they said the announcement in Spanish and English (when everyone was crying).
I never heard or seen something similar before. I've traveled in several carriers and that was totally new for me. Does anyone know if they do that in other airlines for travelling to another country?
Is it really necessary?
