FAA referred 37 'unruly' passengers to FBI for criminal review

Airlines have seen a sharp rise in violent incidents, not just between passengers but with some passengers attacking airline staff as well. Most recently, authorities on Monday arrested a California man and charged him in the assault of an American Airlines flight attendant.

The number of incidents pushed the FAA to adopt a “zero tolerance” approach and better coordinate with the Justice Department to prosecute cases. An FAA spokesman said the agency has initiated 227 cases from more than 5,000 incidents of “unruly passengers.”
