    There was a time when air travel was pretty much free of this idiotic behavior. I can remember when people dressed nicely to get on a plane, and people were courteous. Now it seems that about every day, we read about at least one of these incidents of disruptive behavior.

    I remember civility in air travel. I started flying as a passenger alone at age 14 from LGA-BGM on Mohawk Airlines on an FH-227 to visit my grandmother. My father dressed me in khakis, blue dress shirt and a blue blazer before sending me to see nana. It's kind of a tradition I kept up even as an adult when I was on leisure travel at least the khakis and polo shirt. Today I still see some men my age dressed neatly but the rest of plane its usually jeans, sweats and even pajama bottoms. I guess you have to me comfortable in today's sardine can coach sections without regard of how you look. I've all seen my share of unruly passengers. A woman who went screaming down the aisle while we still at the gate on a Midway II flight screaming that we are going to crash and die. She was escorted off the plane by paramedics and the Port Authority Police. But she did check a bag so we had a 90 min delay on that one while they searched to remove it. I've seen a pax get nasty with a Flight Attendant on an America West Flight from JFK-LAS because she refused to serve him any more alcohol judging by his actions he had enough. That was solved by the First Officer coming back and saying to him. "Look I have 158 passengers on this plane who expect to be in Vegas at 1AM. Now if you don't calm down I'm going to have to make an emergency landing in Indianapolis to put you off and you better believe I'm making an announcement it's your fault. It's 22 degrees in Indy an 60 in Vegas they are all are going to be a little pissed off. So what's it gonna be. Can you sit quietly for the next couple of hours and let these people sleep and our crew do their job?" Shut him up. More recently I saw a guy go off on the F/A on a flight from HPN-DCA on a Delta CRJ because he was asked to check his bag because it wouldn't fit in the overhead. He was quickly escorted off the plane by the Westchester County Police in handcuffs and off we went. Pretty tame stuff. Never seen the duct tape come out. Duct tape really does fix everything. They were using it to fix a leaky galley service door on an Allegiant MD-80 now were keeping passengers more comfortable. Thanks 3M! The sad thing is my older cousin was a "Hostess" for TWA and I remember her letting me read her training manual. it was mostly about proper inflight service. While medical emergencies and drunk passengers were mentioned nothing about the "ME ME ME" generation. Sad how times changed. Kind of tame statement in the movie Airport when Barry Nelson tells Air Traffic Control they may have a "Disturbed Passenger" on board.
