Airlines say most banned passengers can return, but not the worst offenders
April 27, 2022
DALLAS (AP) — Remember all those thousands of passengers that airlines banned for not wearing face masks? Now many airlines want them back.
Leaders of unions that represent flight attendants are reacting with outrage.
American, United and Delta all indicated last Thursday that they will lift the bans they imposed now that masks are optional on flights.
Alaska Airlines said last week the worst of the banned passengers won’t be welcomed back. Southwest said a judge’s ruling that struck down the federal mandate won’t change its decision to bar an undisclosed number of passengers.
