I am all for it. Too many entitled and unhinged people walking and flying around out there. Bound to feel it when it hits them hard in the wallet or they get banned.

I really think the main reason so many people refuse to wear masks is because of their poor oral hygiene and give the stuff they expel from their mouths it must be incredibley uncomfortable to confine that to themselves under a mask.

And can we ban pets on flights, too?

When I get on a plane, I just want to get from point A to point B safely and reasonably comfortably. Having to involuntarily watch someone else's histrionics is not what I pay for. These wannabe actors should confine themselves to u tube and the internet.

Luckily, despite flying quite a lot, I never had to witness crazy behavior. A somehow funny incident was a (Japanese) guy who was so drunk that the flight attended had to help him (he couldn't really walk) two times to go to the toilet to throw up. It was a night flight and fortunately not crowded, and after the toilet relieve, the guy happily fell asleep. To my astonishment, when breakfast was served several hours latter, he woke up, and when asked about drinks, he loudly asked: beer! And he had 2-3 more beers before landing.

There's always gotta be that one narcissist, usually of a certain political affiliation, that simply has to raise a very public fuss about wearing masks on an airplane.

These are the very same people that would excuse a restaurant or other business from denying service to a customer for whatever reason including racist dress codes, saying that it's up to the business to decide what is best for them ("no shoes, no shirt, no service"). Hypocrisy at its finest.

My freind works at an airport, they have told me that people who kick off at air port staff, are put on a nasty-unruly list, its a hidden red mark against your name ( or passport number) so passanges are unaware of this and when that person tries to book another trip, he or she is flagged up on other airline systems. sometime flights are "full" when they book or the price goes up.

People with turret syndrome are often looked at as unruly and that is wrong.

The rules and the potential fines for breaking them should be displayed prominently around airports including the check in areas, security check points, at boarding gates and again at the ends of the jetways before stepping into the airplane itself.

Don't want to follow the rules? Fine, drive or swim. Travel is not a right.

It is ok to burn down a building in Portland but do not mess with Delta or American.
