image for Buttigieg: Federal no fly list 'should be on the table' for violent airplane passengers

"I think that should be on the table," Buttigieg said of the potential list on CNN's "State of the Union.".

It’s why you’re seeing some really harsh penalties and fines being proposed," Buttigieg said.

Buttigieg's remarks come after an American Airlines flight was diverted last week after an attendant was assaulted.

Acts of violence against our team members will not be tolerated by American Airlines.

We have engaged local law enforcement and the FBI and we are working with them to ensure they have all the information they need. »
