A Delta flight from Detroit turned around after some passengers removed their masks and then refused to put them back on. It has now created a “no-fly list” for such cantankerous travelers who will not be allowed on any Delta flight in the future. Will refusing to wear a face mask soon be equated to terrorism? ⁃ TN Editor

Delta Air Lines has placed more than 240 people on a “no fly list” for failing to comply with its mandatory mask policy, CEO Ed Bastian said in a memorandum to employees on Thursday.

“Although rare, we continue to put passengers who refuse to follow the required face-covering rules on our no-fly list,” Bastian said in the memo, which highlighted the airline’s new hub facility in Salt Lake City.

There is currently no federal mandate on masks in airports or on airplanes, forcing each airline to implement its own regulations.

Delta customers and employees are required to wear a face mask or appropriate cloth face covering over their nose and mouth throughout their travel, aligning with best practice guidelines form the CDC, according to the company’s website.

“As we all work toward the recovery, it’s vital that we continue to stay focused on the drive to provide the safest, cleanest airports, aircraft and workspaces possible,” Bastian said.

Face coverings are required across all Delta touchpoints, including the lobby check-in, Delta Sky Clubs, boarding gate areas, jet bridges, and onboard the aircraft, with the exemption of limited time while eating and drinking.

Passengers on major U.S. airlines are required to check a box that confirms they will follow the airline’s mask rules, and airline gate agents can deny boarding to anyone not wearing a mask prior to a flight, Reuters reported.

Delta said they continue to find ways to keep passengers safe aboard flights.

“We also are rolling out a new program, developed in partnership with our expert advisors at the Mayo Clinic, to proactively identify U.S. counties currently experiencing a higher risk of COVID-19 spread,” Bastian said. “On a weekly basis going forward, we plan to notify Delta people living in these “high risk” counties via targeted email so they can take appropriate precautions to protect themselves and their families.”

This entire episode is a lie. It comes from Satan and is meant to usher in the NWO. Viruses are NOT contagious.


How can they afford to do that? Someone giving them gravy train?

“Masks and appropriate cloth coverings” protect against virus=fake science.
Fake science=the new religion of the masses.


Is there anywhere in the regulation that says a mask must be worn over one’s mouth? If not, then I would wear it somewhere else.


I just took several flights across the u.s. and the safety announcement before the flight now includes language saying face masks must be worn at all times over the nose and mouth, unless eating or drinking in which case they must be worn between bites or sips.

The flight attendants then say the penalties for not doing so include fines ($25,000 and higher) as well as jail time.
