Fourteen passengers have been banned from future travel on Alaska Airlines after refusing to wear a mask, being rowdy and argumentative, and continuing to harass crew members on a flight on Thursday night from Dulles International Airport to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, an airline spokesperson said.

The airline stated their behavior was “unacceptable,” and the airline also apologized to other passengers who were uncomfortable during the flight.

Airline officials said, “We will not tolerate any disturbance onboard our aircraft or at any of the airports we serve.”

Perry Cooper, a spokesman for SEA Airport, said Port of Seattle police were called on “civil standby” just in case something occurred. However, when the flight arrived, they were not involved.

Cooper said law enforcement did not speak to anyone on Flight 1085 from Dulles because Alaska Airlines handled the situation.
