The outgoing head of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Tuesday the agency's "zero tolerance policy" for addressing unruly passengers should remain in place indefinitely.

FAA Administrator Steve Dickson, who is stepping down later this week, told reporters the policy first imposed in January 2021 should remain even if the Biden administration decides to lift a mandate requiring masks onboard airplanes.

The Biden administration has extended the transit mask mandate through April 18 and is considering whether it should end or again be continued.
 

DELTA REQUEST FOR NO-FLY LIST

In February, Delta Air Lines asked the U.S. government to place passengers convicted of on-board disruptions on a national "no-fly" list that would bar them from future travel on any commercial airline, according to a letter seen by Reuters.

Delta Chief Executive Ed Bastian, in a previously unreported letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, said the action "will help prevent future incidents and serve as a strong symbol of the consequences of not complying with crew member instructions on commercial aircraft."
