Denying boarding at the gate is likely to generate all kinds of lawsuits.

Denying future travel is definitely the way to go.

"You bought this ticket, so you can go this time, but you're no longer welcome to fly with us." They ought to update their terms of service ASAP, though.

Except this time when they face-to-the-ground drag a Trumpy off the plane we will celebrate and hope for more.

I get that. But who is going to enforce it? The gate agents? Sky marshal?

I'd like to think that it would be enforceable, but if I were one of those unmasked assholes, I'd definitely lawyer up.

I don't know. Who enforces the rule that everyone needs to wear pants or shirts on board?

People sue about everything and of course there will be some conservatives who sue because of their freedumbs. But they'll be laughed out of court. Airlines have a lot of latitude to enforce rules on their flights and, unlike other times, the court of public opinion will be side with the airlines and not the idiots who can't follow the simplest rules for public safety.

Like any other rule for commercial airlines, they are enforced by the local police. Right or wrong, the flight crew can call in the local yokels if a passenger refuses to follow instructions from the flight crew. Most of the time it's belligerent drunks that get rightfully hauled off in cuffs but it makes the news when airline personnel illegally instruct a seated passenger that they must give up their seat for someone else. If you aren't wearing a mask they won't let on the plane, if you force your way on you'll be arrested.

We, Frontier, just booted a dude off the plane in LA for not wanting a mask. The flight attendants called the cops, and the cops took him off.

Of course there are multiple signs at the gate, when you check in, and when you buy. Also the gate agent won't let people into the plane, units they are wearing a mask, and don't pass a temperature check.
