Flight Attendants Taking Self Defense Classes To Deal With Unruly Passengers


With so many unruly passengers boarding airplanes, some flight attendants are learning to defend themselves.  A self-defense course taught by federal air marshals teaches flight attendants de-escalation techniques -as well as how to defend themselves if the passenger turns violent.  The classes are running “with four times the amount of classes and double the number of attendees as before”, according to ABC News.  Some believe the four-hour course should be mandatory for all flight workers.  The FAA has received more than 3,800 reports of unruly passengers in 2021 so far.   Have you witnessed any bad behavior on a plane this summer?  Why are people getting out of control on flights?
