First Amendment Note Topic

American Airlines claims it can ban photos of its staff at the airport.  I get that federal law requires passengers to obey staff while on board the plane, but what authority could there be for this on the ground?  Is it contractual?  If so, why is it enforceable?  Does it violate a public policy?

Also, some airports are owned by public bodies.  Is there a heightened First Amendment claim in those spaces?
