The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it has received approximately 1,300 reports of unruly passengers from airlines since February, a statistic that far outpaces the number of cases of bad passenger behavior the agency has seen in the past.

Of the reported instances, the agency has so far identified potential violations in approximately 260 cases, an FAA spokesman told The Hill on Monday.

The article goes on to state the following:

The spokesman added that the agency has initiated approximately 20 enforcement cases and has sent notices to the passengers. They are, however, preparing “a number of additional enforcement actions.”

According to the report by NBC, passengers are refusing to wear masks, they are consuming alcohol in excess which has lead to verbal or alleged physical abuse, which the agency believes leads to political intimidation and harassment of lawmakers.

TODAY tweeted Tuesday, “The FAA is reporting a dramatic increase in unruly and dangerous passenger behavior on commercial flights. Much of it is centered around drinking, people refusing to wear masks, or engaging in political intimidation. @tomcostellonbc takes a closer look.”

  1. The airlines need to chill. They are NOT making passengers feel enjoyable or comfortable. 99.8% survival. If they want to wear masks or not. Give them the choices.

  2. We are boycotting flying! Many airlines over the years have failed! Remember Pan Am! We the people can make sure they fail!

  3. The powers that be know exactly what they’re doing with these ridiculous mask mandates everywhere: division and attacks by the brainless sheep of those rebelling against wearing them etc. They want this chaos to be in the forefront so we are not paying attention to them and their destruction.
