LONDON – Delta Air Lines has requested that the U.S Department of Justice place unruly passengers onto the no-fly list.

This letter was signed on Thursday by CEO Ed Bastian who said there needs to be “zero tolerance” for any behaviour from such passengers.

“This action will help prevent future incidents and serve as a strong symbol of the consequences of not complying with crew member instructions on commercial aircraft,”

Delta has their own no-fly list, spanning nearly 1,900 people at the moment due to things such as failing to comply with mask requirements.

Of that 1,900 figure, 900 have been referred to the Transportation Security Administration to pursue civil fines.

At present, there around 4.9 reported unruly incidents per 10,000 flights, based of statistics from the last week in January.

Unruly passengers has become quite a theme within the United States travel sector, especially with the argument over civil liberties as well as challenging people who aren’t complying with the rules.
