(CNN) — Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian sent a letter to US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday reiterating his call for the Justice Department to prosecute unruly passengers and place them on a "no-fly" list.

Bastian first called for a no-fly list in September in a memo to employees first reported by CNN.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said in late October that a federal no-fly list for violent airplane passengers "should be on the table."

Delta kicked two unruly passengers off Flight 1582 from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta on Tuesday.

Last year was the worst on record for unruly airplane passenger behavior in the United States, according to Federal Aviation Administration data.

A whopping 5,981 reports of unruly passengers were logged by the FAA as of December 31.

As of February 1, there have been 323 reports of unruly passenger behavior so far this year, according to FAA tracking. »
