Buttigieg: Federal No-Fly List “Should Be On The Table”

CNN reports:

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said on Sunday that a federal no-fly list for violent airplane passengers should be evaluated. “I think that should be on the table,” Buttigieg said of the potential list on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“The [Federal Aviation Administration] stands strongly with flight crews. It’s why you’re seeing some really harsh penalties and fines being proposed,” Buttigieg said.

Buttigieg’s remarks come after an American Airlines flight was diverted last week after an attendant was assaulted. A passenger was arrested when the plane landed in Denver and the attendant was taken to a local hospital. The attendant’s injuries included broken bones in her face.
