Refusing to wear a mask on a Delta flight has serious consequences – a ban on flying.
Delta Airlines says that it has banned nearly 250 passengers from flying with the airline for refusing to abide by its mandatory mask policy.
Delta has a very strict mask policy, requiring one be worn at all points in flight and across all check-points, including check-in, TSA security and boarding lines.
In an internal memo that was shared with CNN, Delta CEO Ed Bastian said that “although rare, we continue to put passengers who refuse to follow the required face-covering rules on our no-fly list. As we work toward recovery, it’s vital that we continue to stay focused on the drive to provide the safest, cleanest airports, aircraft and workspaces possible.”
If you choose to fly during the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC advises wearing a mask in all airport locations.
