He said flight attendants “get insulted and mistreated by passengers over things that we cannot control.” and that their behavior “has made this flight a living hell”. The FAA says incidents of bad behavior by passengers have surged in recent months. Such cases can be punished with bans and fines of up to $35,000.
Flying is understandably much more of a hassle than it was pre-pandemic for crew and passengers alike. But unruly, rude, and negative behavior won’t fix anything and just make others less willing to want to help you. Remember that the workers in the airport and on your flight are just as frustrated as you are. A little kindness goes a long way.
