U.S. Adheres to Zero Tolerance Policy for Rough Air Passengers

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland instructed the prosecutor’s office to prioritize air passengers who committed attacks and other crimes on board aircraft, Reuters reported on November 25. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Nov. 4 that it had turned over the cases of more than 30 passengers to the FBI for possible criminal prosecution. It is noted that this year recorded a sharp increase in the number of incidents on board aircraft.

After American airlines complained of a record number of incidents of misconduct and violence in 2021, the FAA pledged to embrace a zero-tolerance policy.

As of 23 November, there were 5338 reports of violent passenger incidents. At the same time, 3856 messages are associated with unwillingness to wear masks. On Monday, November 22, the FAA proposed to impose fines of $ 161,823 on eight passengers for violent behavior and alcohol use.
