SEATTLE — At least 14 people could be placed on Alaska Airlines' banned passengers list after they were rowdy, argumentative and refused to wear masks on a flight from Dulles International Airport to Seattle, the airline said.
Airline spokesperson Ray Lane said those facing the possible ban were on Flight 1085 from the D.C.-area airport to Sea-Tac International Airport on Thursday night.
"Last night, a number of passengers onboard Alaska Airlines Flight 1085 from Washington Dulles to Seattle were non-mask compliant, rowdy, argumentative and harassed our crew members," Lane wrote in an email Friday morning.
"Their behavior was unacceptable. We apologize to our other guests who were made uncomfortable on the flight."
The 14 passengers face being placed on Alaska's ban list, Lane said.
To date, Alaska Airlines has banned 288 people for violating its mask policy, not including the 14 potential additions, he said.
