From Regulation Enforcement Right now:
I had a chance to talk with present Federal Air Marshal Company President William “Bill” Beller, who additionally serves because the recruitment director for the Federal Regulation Enforcement Officers Affiliation (FLEOA). When talking with him in regards to the Frontier Airways face masks incident, he acknowledged the next:
[The Federal Air Marshals] are there to do a job. We’re there to guard America. We’re there to make sure there’s not one other 9/11 sort of assault on our nation.”
Beller continued from there, noting the ridiculousness of an airline worker attempting to conflate the American flag as some sort of offensive image whereas boarding a flight in the US:
“Basically, denying one of my coworkers for wearing an American flag – the flag is part of our nation, right? It’s part of who we are as Americans. I don’t think that’s any derogatory statement towards anybody.”
Until they’re sporting an American Flag Face Masks and occur to be a Federal Air Marshal, proper Frontier? https://t.co/I1howDN0tZ

Frontier Airways Makes an attempt To Reply
The unidentified Air Marshal eliminated the American flag gaiter so he may board the flight to work. However, he shouldn’t have had to try this.
Frontier Airways has already began harm management. An airline spokesperson mentioned there’s a coverage in opposition to sure kinds of masks and that the gate agent mistook the gaiter for a bandana.
Frontier claimed it is a misunderstanding.
However, this clarification doesn’t try. Numerous individuals put on gaiters, so she ought to have simply understood the distinction. And for the reason that Air Marshal wore the disposable masks she gave him, the type of the gaiter isn’t the problem. It’s what on the gaiter that gave the impression to be the issue.
The misunderstanding right here is that Frontier doesn’t perceive that the American flag isn’t offensive.
