If convicted I assume the passenger would be banned from flying on UAL but can she also be banned from other airlines too?

Virgin Atlantic In 2014 In The U.S,

Hello everyone,

I have not heard too much about Virgin Atlantic so I was wondering how they did in the United States in 2013 and what their

Thanks!

Will this result in a felony convection for the one who is accused of this crime and does the United agent have the right
