Since it put a mandatory mask policy in place, Delta Airlines has banned 240 people from flying because they refused to comply, the company’s CEO has revealed.
In a memo issued Thursday, Delta chief Ed Bastian encouraged flight attendants to continue being vigilant about enforcing the policy, noting, “Although rare, we continue to put passengers who refuse to follow the required face-covering rules on our no-fly list. 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.”

Delta recently extended its 60 percent cabin capacity policy — which was originally set to expire next month — through January 2021.
