Ed Bastien, CEO of Delta Airlines, said the carrier has banned "well over 100 people" for refusing to wears masks during flights. Passengers can't get on board without a facial covering but some people refuse to keep them on during flights.
Bastien said that has caused disruptions and forced at least one plane to return to the gate. He said people who refuse to wear masks will also be banned from booking future flights on Delta.
