I know you finally specified but Spain and Portugal both still had everyone wearing masks nbd just a few weeks ago when I was there

Was there earlier this week, can confirm. Required on the flights as well.

Just can back from London. No masks

Same as well - no masks required, but still suggested on the tube etc. Prob about 50% of people wearing them there and then other places much less.

Sorry, I meant on a US based carrier from the U.S. to Asia. I was not sure if Delta would still required masks traveling from the US to Singapore

Masks on planes are under the jurisdiction of the arrival country. So if Singapore still requires masks, you will have to wear them on the flight.
