Available options instead of following the rules you knew applied before you even boarded the acft:
1) get your PPL and fly your own plane
2) walk

entitled egocentric ignoramuses who don't show care and consideration for fellow passengers now can choose not to fly delta and can instead take the bus.

Curious why this flight took-off in the first place. Surely a pre-flight cabin check was conducted to see if passengers were strapped-in and masked-up. The cost of turning a flight back must've been enormous!

I wondered about this.

Perhaps they wore them to board, took them off after take off, and refused to put them back.

I am surprised they weren't lynched by the other passengers.

True, forcing someone into a mask is difficult.

Probably easier to force them into a parachute harness, and push them out.

Same as if when you take off everything is fine, then some maniac decides to do something unsafe. Like... what this article is about.

At last - some common sense from across the pond. Makes up for the idiotic statements coming from your president.

Must have been flat earthers. They also think Covid is a big lie, only to control the masses...

This and all the stupid covid deniers like in Victoria, Australia now with stage 4 lockdown and state govt has made it mandatory to wear masks in public at all times. Idiots still saying shops are discriminating them by asking them to leave when not wearing, even though it's law.

Yes, masks are BS and they s**k but:
Crew compliance is paramount
So well done Delta crew
