No-Fly List Requested for Unruly Passengers in the US
Today’s blog update will talk about the No-Fly List of Unruly Passengers.
The amount of unruly passengers on business airplanes has increased during the pandemic. It has been accredited mainly to the pressures gained by the Coronavirus and the latest masking guideline on planes and in airports.
The Federal Aviation Administration fielded approximately 6000 reports of unruly passengers the past year, and 4,290 of these reports were correlated to masking.
The Delta CEO requested to make a No-Fly List for unruly passengers
The CEO of Delta Air Lines, Ed Bastian has sent a letter to US Attorney General Merrick Garland, requesting the country’s chief law enforcement officer’s help through the Department of Justice to form a ‘no-fly’ list for unruly passengers.
Ed Bastian said that a domestic no-fly list should be established for anyone condemned of a crime connected to a disruptive confrontation.
Although the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) initiated a zero-tolerance policy for in-flight disputes, including penalties of up to $52,000, Bastian stated a no-fly list would take away a citizen’s capability to travel on any commercial airline, and it would be a powerful dissuasion.
As per the reports, Delta alone has added around 2,000 passengers to its no-fly list with nearly all of the incidents concerning face masks, which are federally demanded on flights.
The Transportation Security Administration received 1000 names by the airline.
In September, Delta previously called for a national unruly passenger no-fly list but was never attained.
