Delta asked “other airlines to share their ‘no fly’ list to further protect airline employees across the industry — something we know is top of mind for you as well,” Kristen Manion Taylor, Delta’s senior vice president, wrote to flight attendants this week in a memo reported on by CNBC. “A list of banned customers doesn’t work as well if that customer can fly with another airline.
A singular “no fly” list between major airlines like JetBlue
could help limit the amount of passengers who demonstrate unruly behavior from flights.
While incidents are down from historical highs in early 2021, rates are still “too high,” the FAA says.
In addition to being placed on a “no fly” list, passengers could be fined for breaking airlines’s rules. The FAA has assessed $1.1 million worth of fines since January 2021.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is currently enforcing a federal federal mask mandate for all travelers on commercial flights, buses and trains through January 2022.
Over 70% of all unruly passenger incidents in 2021 are “mask-related.”
