That is a 'no-brainer'. I had assumed that it was already industry wide.

the federal "no fly" list was started as a way to screen possible terrorist threats to an aiplane,or to catch someone who may be on an fbi list..the airlines "no fly" lists are persons who have been disruptive on a flight,caused a fight or other such,and if they interfere with a crew member on that airline,they can be banned,but possibly fly on another carrier as they are not terrorists,but just people who are nasty or rude...

no arguements, no worms in any can, can occur if no-fly lists are shared and acted upon. The federal government accumulates the list. Is there an obligation for an airline to forward to the feds each and every miscreant any airline cites as disruptive, a non-flier on a particular airline? To inject some fairnesss into this, maybe the list ought to have a sunset provision connected to a hearing.

The actual "no-fly list" is a federal program maintained by the gov. No one on that list can fly on any airline.

Individual airlines can deny transport to people they deem "disruptive", and so far they haven't been sharing those denied with other airlines. There are arguments on both sides and it certainly opens up a can of worms.

No kidding. “A slew of domestic terrorist” is less than 200 bad apples out of a million at a peaceful protest that were LET IN the capitol building. We have seen the videos of the people picking up trash in the building, staying in the ropes, and calmly walking with the help of police and they still believe this narrative? I hate to bust y’all’s bubble but there are no “violent armed protests” planned for, Jan 20th, this is a psy op - if anything happens it won’t be maga protestors perpetrating it.

If you need 20,000 troops to guard your inauguration, you didn’t win shit. Something else is afoot.

Totally agree. We're going to get a shit ton of downvotes because of how liberal flightaware is but just had to say that you're not alone.

I'm hoping to enjoy another year or two of flying before I'm on a no fly list for having dangerous ideals but I may not even get to fly again. Sad and injust.
