1 ~~~ United Will Place People Who Refuse to Wear a Mask on a No-fly List (Video) ~~~
Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, and Southwest Airlines are also reinforcing their mask policies.
United Airlines will temporarily ban passengers from flying if they refuse to wear a mask on board as part of a new policy to reinforce the coronavirus-sparked rule.
The move comes as several other U.S. carriers have pledged to crack down on mask-wearing in the air, according to Airlines for America, or A4A, an organization that represents major airlines.
Starting June 18, United will place anyone who doesn’t comply with the airline’s mask policy on an internal travel restriction list. United started requiring employees to wear face masks while working on April 24 and expanded that to customers on May 4.
