A) I sat in the jump seat on a long Pacific Rim 747-400 flight
recently, and neither crew member was masked. I thought we were at
350 but must check my notes.

B) When does the "catcher-mask" rule apply?

C) I was sure I saw a bottle in the side pouch, with gauge; has
the Aloha incident changed the rules for cockpit O2 so it now has
to be local storage, perhaps?
