Second. Buttigieg: Federal no-fly list “should be on the table” for violent passengers
“It is completely unacceptable to mistreat, abuse or even disrespect flight crews,” Buttigieg told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” adding, “We will continue to review all options to ensure flight crews and passengers are safe. . “
“There is absolutely no excuse for this kind of treatment of flight crews in the air or any of the essential workers – from bus drivers to air crews who get people where they need to be,” a- he declared.
“If you break the rules, be prepared to pay,” Biden said, speaking from the White House. “And by the way, show some respect. The anger you see on TV towards flight attendants and other people doing their jobs is bad. It’s ugly.”
Civil penalties now range from $ 500 to $ 3,000, according to the Department of Homeland Security. The previous range was $ 250 to $ 1,500, and the highest fines of $ 1,000 to $ 3,000 are for repeat warrant offenders, the ministry said.
There is currently an FBI-administered federal no-fly list, which is designed to prevent known and suspected terrorists from obtaining airline tickets and boarding flights.
