Airlines have banned more than 4,000 passengers for unruly behavior in the last year


(CBS News) Refusing to wear a mask or other unruly behavior on an airplane has gotten more than 4,000 people banned by U.S. airlines over the past year. And a few people have ended up with thousands of dollars in fines — in one case, the federal government is requesting a more than $32,000 penalty.

The civil penalty is one of four the Federal Aviation Administration announced it is seeking Wednesday against airline passengers who allegedly interfered with or assaulted flight attendants. A February 7 JetBlue flight headed to New York had to return to the Dominican Republic after a passenger refused to wear a face mask after being asked by flight attendants to wear one, threw an empty alcohol bottle and food, cursed at crew members, grabbed one flight attendant and hit another and drank alcohol that wasn't served to her.

The administration is seeking a $32,750 fine in that incident — the highest requested since the pandemic began. The other fines range from $9,000 to $16,500. In two of those cases — one on a January 26 flight and one on a January 30 flight — passengers either refused to wear a mask or refused to wear it properly. The administration also announced three penalties last week for disruptive behavior, ranging from $14,500 to $31,500. .........(more)

3. Interfering with a flight crew (and that includes attendants!)

is a real good way to get the crap knocked out of you (especially after 9-11), in addition to being illegal. Shouting "Trump Akbar!" isn't going to help their cases at 30,000 feet.

Dear MAGAts: Act like you belong in civil society, or get sent to the cornfield. The rest of us are tired of your shit.

6. The story indicates that most of these bans and fines are for mask non-compliance

Which appears to be overwhelmingly associated with MAGAts

9. Perhaps they are, but if you look up any of the recent videos they don't seem to resemble the

average MAGA type.

5. Better than the era of terrorist hijackings in the 1970s. That passed,

and this will too.

Except it'll seem a long time to those who can't fly. Wonder how many of them need to travel for work. Whatever, good riddance.

A relative just ran into a couple on a plane for the second time within a few days, not a happy coincidence because the first time the woman opened their still-born acquaintance by complaining about all the "Covid BS." Needless to say, they won't be chatting over margaritas on the beach.

11. How hard is it to...

...keep to yourself, mind your manners and just be decent for the few hours you are at the airport and on a plane? Good grief.
