Delta Airlines Suggests Sharing Restricted Passenger Lists

During the previous year, various airlines operating in the United States have faced issues with disruptive and at times violent passengers. As per the latest data from the Federal Aviation Administration, more than 4,385 incident reports have been registered, with about a third of those linked to face mask protocols for pandemic safety. Although the FAA has implemented a strict policy and has been including unruly passengers in cautionary listings, incidents continue to persist, significantly impacting flight staff.

To prevent unruly passengers from causing disruptions on their flights, Delta Airlines has proposed a collaboration in resources. Each airline maintains its own Restricted Passenger lists, denying access to listed passengers, but this only relocates a passenger to a different airline to potentially cause trouble. Hence, Delta has recommended that airlines commence sharing their Restricted Passenger lists to monitor unruly passengers more effectively.

In a communication to cabin crew members, Delta’s senior vice president of in-flight service, Kristen Manion Taylor, detailed that the airline has urged “other airlines to exchange their ‘no travel’ list to safeguard airline employees throughout the sector — an aspect we understand is a primary concern for you too.”

“A catalog of banned customers is less effective if that customer can travel with another airline.”

One approach that other airlines are pursuing involves restricting the sale of alcohol. Numerous reported unruly passengers have been intoxicated during those instances, which is why American Airlines and Southwest Airlines are currently refraining from serving alcoholic beverages on their flights. Rep. Peter DeFazio, chairman of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, highlighted in written testimony on passenger conduct that local eateries can contribute by refraining from selling alcohol in takeout cups.

“There is no justification for a passenger to leave a restaurant with a carryout cup of alcohol and embark on a flight with it,” he remarked.
