A maskless airline passenger who blew his nose into a blanket faces a $10,500 fine

The Federal Aviation Administration announced this week that it had proposed a civil penalty of $10,500 against a JetBlue passenger whose disruptive behavior on a flight included coughing and blowing his nose into a blanket.

“The FAA alleges the passenger repeatedly ignored, and was abusive to, flight attendants who instructed him to wear a face mask,” the agency said in a news release. “The passenger’s disruptive behavior diverted flight crew members from their duties.”

“He yelled, slammed overhead bins, and shouted profanities at the cabin crew, including threatening to harass a flight attendant during the entire flight,” the release said. The passenger also cursed at the captain, the FAA said, and was escorted out of the terminal by law enforcement.

While the FAA did not identify the passenger, media reports at the time said JetBlue had banned the rapper Lil Pump for the same behavior on that date and route.

1. I remember that story.

He’s recently made news by making a YouTube video threatening the vandals who broke windows on his cars. It’s pretty funny, though sad, to watch. A real gem of a gentleman.

3. Good. Anti-social behavior should cost you big bucks.

I am all for penalizing solitary acts of anti-social behavior with stiff financial penalties. It's the price of democracy. With any luck, we can add a few hundred billion in civil fines to the national Treasury.

12. I certainly hope those blankets are washed before they are stuffed into plastic bags.

And if they are, I really don't care if the passenger uses a blankie as a hankie.

This is what I find troublesome, and worth the fine.

“He yelled, slammed overhead bins, and shouted profanities at the cabin crew, including threatening to harass a flight attendant during the entire flight,” the release said. The passenger also cursed at the captain, the FAA said, and was escorted out of the terminal by law enforcement.

13. That would be disgusting even without COVID.

In those situations, I wish the flight attendants were allowed to use tranquilizer darts.
