Delta Bans 460 Passengers For Not Wearing Mask on Flight

(WatchDogReport.org) – The debate about whether masks work against COVID-19 is still raging across the country. The consensus from health professionals is face coverings, if worn properly, can help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. But, the CDC just suggests people wear them; it’s not a requirement. The same is not said for airlines like Delta.

According to an October 23 NBC News report, Delta Airlines has banned at least 460 people for refusing to wear masks. The travelers weren’t just kicked off a plane, it’s worse than that. CEO Ed Bastian said they were put on the airline’s “no-fly” list. Yes, the same one that suspected terrorists go on.

In the US, people are supposed to have the freedom to put what they want on their bodies. Should airlines really have the right to tell an American citizen what they can wear? Further, to add them to a “no-fly” list with alleged terrorists is outrageous.
