Alaska Airlines bans Eagle River lawmaker for violating COVID-19 mask policy

JUNEAU — Alaska Airlines said Saturday that it has banned state Sen. Lora Reinbold, R-Eagle River, from its flights for continuing to refuse to follow mask-wearing requirements for travelers.

No other airline has scheduled flights between Anchorage and Juneau, and Reinbold is now in Southcentral Alaska. A ferry trip could take several days.

“We have notified Senator Lora Reinbold that she is not permitted to fly with us for her continued refusal to comply with employee instruction regarding the current mask policy,” spokesman Tim Thompson said by email.

“This suspension is effective immediately, pending further review. Federal law requires all guests to wear a mask over their nose and mouth at all times during travel, including throughout the flight, during boarding and deplaning, and while traveling through an airport,” he said.

The irony is that in order to demonstrate her freedom, the senator has limited her mobility.

1. The cheapest way is by plane. She can always car ferry & train or car ferry & bus herself now.

.

That is until she gets booted from those too.

2. Pretty fancy shooting yourself in the foot there, Lora.

Enjoy your charter flights or moose caravans, as the case may be.

3. Lots of private float planes in Alaska

Maybe some lobbyist trying to curry favor will arrange for a ride
