WASHINGTON — Lawmakers in Washington say they are working to protect airline crew members from abusive passengers.
There’s now a new bill in the House of Representatives filed Wednesday known as the “Protection from Abusive Passengers Act.” If passed, it would outright ban passengers who act out on flights from taking future commercial flights.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), there have been 7,062 reports of unruly passengers from the start of 2021 through April 4, 2022. 4,997 of those have been related to face masks.
