There has been an increase in violent passenger events. It’s time for a “no fly” list.

More than 2,300 “unruly passenger” incidents have been reported this year to the FAA. Unruly passengers face fines of up to $37,000. This year alone, the FAA has issued more than $8 million in unruly-passenger fines. Congress should enact a federal “no-fly” list for unruly passengers. Bipartisan legislation is in the works that would make this happen.

Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and Southwest support such a list. There are fair concerns about how a no-fly list would work — and how someone could get off it.
