Federal officials say they are pursuing civil penalties against two more passengers for interfering with airline crews. The cases that Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday are just the latest in a surge in recent months. The agency is seeking penalties of up to $10,500 against a man who refused flight attendants’ orders to wear a face mask and another man who cursed at flight attendants and the captain shortly after boarding the plane. The FAA says it is continuing to take a zero-tolerance stance in such cases — no warnings, just proposed civil penalties, sometimes topping $30,000.
