Delta puts 460 passengers on ‘no-fly list’ for refusing to wear masks

Delta Airlines is grounding hundreds of its fliers — because they refused to wear masks.

The airline told employees on Thursday that it has added 460 passengers who refused to mask-up to a “no-fly list, NBC reported.

“Wearing a mask is among the simplest and most effective actions we can take to reduce transmission, which is why Delta has long required them for our customers and our people,” Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in a letter to staff.

The airline industry has already taken a massive hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing many airline companies to start furloughing workers  Earlier this month Delta reported a $5.38 billion loss in revenue.

With the United States seeing another spike in COVID-19 cases and as the weather gets colder, Bastian reminded his employees that stopping the spread of the virus is essential to a return to normalcy.

“With the cold-weather months approaching, stopping the spread will be crucial to our recovery from the pandemic and Delta’s return to growth and leadership within our industry,” he wrote.

Delta has also announced they will resume selling middle seat tickets in the new year “based on consumer sentiment and confidence in air travel.”
