ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A federal judge in Florida struck down the national mask mandate covering airlines and other public transportation Monday, and the Biden administration said the rule would not be enforced while federal agencies decide how to respond to the judge's order.

The ruling appeared to free operators to make their own decisions about mask requirements, with several airlines announcing they would drop mandates but New York City's public transit system planning to keep one in place.

The Association of Flight Attendants, the nation's largest union of cabin crews, has recently taken a neutral position on the mask rule because its members are divided about the issue. On Monday, the union's president appealed for calm on planes and in airports.
