Ahead of the governmental inauguration, in the wake of the current Capitol riots, Delta Airlines released an alert Thursday to prohibit firearms in examined luggage for passengers traveling to Washington, D.C. up until January 23.

” We are all on high alert based on the events over the last couple weeks up in Washington, ″ Delta Airlines CEO Ed Bastian informed CNBC on Thursday.

It appears that prohibiting firearms is not the only recent restriction that Delta Airlines has issued.

” We have actually prohibited some passengers for their habits on a current flight,” Anthony Black, a spokesperson for Delta Airlines, told Newsweek

The restriction comes after videos emerged online of different events in which Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) were bugged at various airports.

The Claim

One Twitter user wrote Thursday that “Trump Fans Who Bugged Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham at the airport have actually been Placed on No-Fly List,” in a tweet with more than 1,000 favorites.

Another Twitter user on Thursday composed “Turning to disturbance on recent U.S. flights by fans of U.S. President Donald Trump, Bastian stated Delta has actually placed passengers involved in incidents that targeted senators Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham on its no-fly list.”

Turning to interruption on current U.S. flights by supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump, Bastian said Delta has positioned travelers involved in events that targeted senators Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham on its no-fly list.

In the video, an unnamed private recording approached Romney.

Romney appeared to try to calmly respond to a barrage of questions.

Romney, who obviously appeared to have had enough of the confrontation, got up from his chair to stroll away.

The specific shooting followed Romney to hurl insults as a second individual with a phone out approached to take part.

Black confirmed to Newsweek that those identified as pestering Romney will be banned from flying on Delta indefinitely.

” We informed all the travelers who were affected by the no-fly and have actually sent them direct letters,” Black stated.

A few days after the video of Romney’s harassment occurred, a video of Graham being bugged in Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Arlington, Virginia, was published by Politico press reporter Daniel Lippman.

In the video, a growing crowd is seen shouting at Graham before breaking out in unison to shout that he is a “traitor.”

A woman wearing an “I enjoy Trump” shirt is seen shrieking, “One day they will not be able to walk down the street … that day is today.”

Delta has not banned those who bothered Graham because he was flying on a various airline that day, Black stated.

The Ruling

Half true.

Delta Airlines permanently prohibited travelers involved in bothering Senator Romney in Salt Lake City International Airport. Nevertheless, it did not prohibit those captured on video in Reagan National bugging Senator Graham due to the fact that they were not flying on Delta that day.
