Without a mask on the plane, 700 "refused" passengers in the US
US policies foresee the face covered from two years and up
"The catalog is this": they are not lovers, but with the same precision as Leporello in Mozart's "Don Giovanni", "Los Angeles Times" listed the number of passengers who were banned from traveling by US carriers in this difficult health period. There were more than 700 people who refused to wear masks and not welcome on board. The absolute greatest severity was shown by Delta Airlines (a carrier that could become a partner of Alitalia), which “boasts” 270 refusals. Numbers of United Airlines (150 travellers on the “black list”), Spirit Airlines (128) and Frontier Airlines (106) are not low either.
There was also no lack of warnings from the carriers themselves, a sort of "yellow card", like in football, to make passengers understand that they are at risk. Incidentally, this particular count could be even higher, as a major airline like American Airlines did not want to release the same type of information. In United States, mask is imposed on those who travel by air and are over two years old, with restrictions on the consumption of food or drinks or for the intake of drugs. All over the world, however, there have been particular cases of people who have caused chaos and disorder precisely because of the refusal to cover their faces.
