Thoughts on the explosion of violent airline passenger incidents


Passenger violence on aircraft is occurring at an alarming rate. IMO this is because airline travel is the one place left in the US that has a zero tolerance policy for certain behaviors like mask wearing, etc. In this era of "my comfort is more important than any of your needs", where people can barge their way through most businesses, etc without wearing a mask or abiding by any other dress or behavior restrictions, these self-centered individuals get physical when confronted with a real "no means no" situation. This has been building for some time even prior to the pandemic. For the past several years, on almost every flight I see someone with their feet, often bare, poking through onto the armrest of the passenger in front of them and they get very nasty when told to keep their body parts in their own space. It makes me long for the good old days of airline regulation where you had space between seats, in flight meals, people dressed nice, and everyone was cordial. Yeah tickets were more expensive then but now we have to deal with any Neanderthal with a couple of bucks who wants to stuff themselves into an undersized seat to create hovac.
