LONDON – Ed Bastian, Delta Chief Executive Officer, is calling on the US Government to publish a no fly list, containing passengers convicted of on-board disruption.

In a letter seen by Reuters to Merric Garland, US Attorney General, Bastian says a list “will help prevent future incidents and serve as a strong symbol of the consequences of not complying with crew member instructions on commercial aircraft.”

Last month, people were charged with assaulting a Delta security officer at New York JFK in September. Their charge was was because they “viciously assaulted an airline security officer by beating him to the floor with his radio and then kicking and punching him in the face and body while he was down,” U.S. Attorney Breon Peace said last month.

Delta has put nearly 1900 people on their no fly list because they failed to comply with mask requirements. Additionally, they’ve set more than 900 people’s names to the Transportation Security Administration for civil action.

There is currently a no fly list in the US. It is a subset of a terrorism watch list. It allows the US Government to ban anyone from flying with Airlines who they consider a threat to civil aviation.
