In July, an American Airlines passenger was flying from Dallas, Texas, to Charlotte, North Carolina, when she “threatened to hurt the flight attendant” who offered her assistance after she fell into the aisle. After that, the unidentified woman shoved the flight attendant aside and attempted to open the cabin door. According to the FAA, “two flight attendants attempted to restrain the passenger, but she repeatedly struck one of the flight attendants on the head.” “After being restrained in flex cuffs, the passenger spit at, headbutted, bit, and attempted to kick the crew and other passengers,” authorities added.

 

The passenger on American Airlines was fined $81,950 (£62,950), the largest fine ever imposed by US aviation regulators. This is more than the $77,272 (£59,360) fine imposed on a Delta Airlines passenger who bit another passenger after attempting to hug and kiss another.

 

In February, the FAA announced that it had referred 80 unruly plane passengers to the FBI for possible criminal prosecution. US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg stated that the administration and Congress are considering a “no-fly” list for disruptive passengers.
