As per the coronavirus policy of airlines, passenger who refused to wear a face mask was banned temporarily on 17th June. Mr. Brandon Straka was not permitted to fly American, as he failed to comply with the stated policy and crewmember instructions.
Airlines said in a statement “We are committed to protecting the safety and well-being of our customers and team members, which is why we strengthened enforcement of our policy for required face coverings on board. We expect customers who choose to fly with us to comply with these policies, and if necessary, we will deny future travel for customers who refuse to do so.”
United, American, Delta, Southwest, Alaska, Frontier and JetBlue all have announced passenger mask requirements before flying. Further the United Airlines doubled down on its mandatory mask policy and announced Monday that any passenger who refuses to comply with its mask requirement will be placed on an “internal travel restriction list”.
