this is a well documented assault on a flight crew member, with broken bones and lots of blood, done in front of witnesses by a man upon a female crewmember. This is a outrage that the man who did this is not sitting in jail, even though there are questions about jurisdiction here. The FBI has offices and agents in all states, federal prosecutors are likewise positioned, so the Department of Justice ought to get cracking on having clear responses to these increasing examples of passengers running amok. ANother example of the FAA being unresponsive .
The FAA does not control the FBI. And just as with aircraft - as soon as it leaves the ground anything that happens in the air is federal.
There is no reason why these numb-nutted, poor excuse for adults could ever pay for the cost of an aircraft diversion. They should be Federally prosecuted, found guilty and given a non-negotiable jail sentence AND then they can carry around a Felony Conviction on their permanent record to brag about! You do this and I guarantee all this will stop in a month. Except for the ones that belong in jail?
Not only the direct aircraft costs, but for each passenger too. Many have missed flights/appointments, etc., that all have a monetary impact as well.
Agreed but these are the same people who complain about a checked bag fee or a $30 ticket change so you know paying for “everyones” out of pocket expenses for a diversion due to an irate passenger is out of the question.
That's not really the problem of the other passengers. Why should they be responsible for possible hotel accomodations, missed connections and other consequences arising from the diversion?
