The White House Office of Management and Budget called the proposed amendment from Democratic Rep.

Man Removed From American Airlines Flight for Not Wearing a Mask

  Man Removed From American Airlines Flight for Not Wearing a Mask The incident occurred days after the airline doubled down on its mask policy. The passenger, Brandon Straka, had boarded a flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport heading to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and declined to put on a face covering. “Prior to the departure from the gate of American Airlines flight 1263 from New York’s LaGuardia to Dallas/Fort Worth, Brandon Straka declined to wear a face covering," a spokesperson from American told Travel + Leisure on Thursday. "After he refused to comply with the instructions provided by the flight crew, our team members asked him to deplane.

The idea of a universal mandate has been a controversial topic.

Industry leaders from airport and airline CEOs to union heads to lobby groups have all but begged for a federal requirement for passengers to wear masks.

Virtually every airline has imposed rules on wearing face masks, to the point where some are banning passengers who refuse to do so.

But it nonetheless has made for numerous confrontations between travelers and crew members trying to enforce the ban, to the point where one man held up an entire flight claiming his HIPAA rights were violated by having to explain why he wasn’t wearing a face mask.

Delta Air Lines even turned a plane around after multiple passengers refused to wear a face mask.

“President Trump’s flagrant disregard for basic public health measures is bad enough, but threatening to derail federal funding for major transportation and housing programs due to a common-sense provision to require masks on planes, trains, and buses is baffling,” Price said in a statement.
