"Welcome to the arab. They're a podcast about the wide world of aviation and aerospace. I'm dominique abreu ellen. Kennedy there's an old nat king cole. Song did i love. The chorus goes straighten up and fly right and this most certainly applies today to how we all should act but flying is an airline passenger allen. We all know that life is an airline passenger in. The twenty first century can be stressful. Health concerns new regulations. Unruly fellow passengers and flight delays can be nerve racking for any traveler. But remember that the pilots and flight attendants are there to get you to your destination safely and everything they do is for your benefit in fact. Did you know that there are federal regulations. Bat actually prohibit passengers from interfering with crew members. Yeah that's right. Violating these regulations can result in hefty fines and we mean hefty all excellent points dominate after years of decline incidents of unruly passengers unfortunately spiked twenty eighteen. And from twenty twenty. Two twenty one. They've had record numbers largely because passengers failed to listen to flight attendants directions about the new mask policy in january. Twenty twenty one. faa administrator. steve. Dixon signed an order directing zero tolerance policy against unruly airline passengers in the wake of recent troubling incidents. Recently we've seen a disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior. These incidents have stemmed both from passengers refusals to wear masks and from recent violence at the us capitol. This dangerous behavior can distract disrupt and threatened crew members safety functions and as a former airline captain. It's extremely concerning to me. And i know it's equally concerning to the airline cockpit and cabin crews whose primary responsibility is to ensure the safety of all passengers. Now historically we have addressed unruly passenger incidence using a variety of methods ranging from warnings and counselling to civil penalties but these recent events show that a change in our policy is necessary so this week i signed an order. Directing faa safety inspectors and attorneys to pursue legal enforcement action against any passenger who assaults threatens intimidates war interferes with the crew members. We will not address these cases. Winds or counseling. Thanks administrator dixon alan. That policy was initially scheduled to expire on march thirtieth twenty twenty one but the administrator extended the order for as long as current mass policies. By the us cdc and tsa remain in effect for airline passengers administered or dickson made it clear that the faa is to ensuring that commercial airline passengers comply with these regulations. He added that the agency will pursue legal enforcement action against any passenger who assaults threatens intimidates or interferes with airline crew members and that unruly passengers could face civil penalties of up to thirty five thousand dollars. No one wants that. Dominy as we navigate through the airspace together. It's important to remember some basic rules of airline passenger travel. The first rule is something. We've always called common courtesy. Once were aboard the aircraft the way we behave impacts those around us as we stated earlier the flight crew is there to get you to your destination and back safely and everything they do is for your benefit our colleague alison do cat recently sat down with sarah nelson. International president of the association of flight attendants. Sarah talked about how flight attendants are keeping passengers safe every day. Well thanks for joining me. Sarah i'm very interested in getting your behind the scenes insights that you're hearing from your members about how the pandemic has affected air travel. Let's get right to the point. What's most important to us. And i think i will lead you and your members the safety of passengers and the flight attendants and the crew arm. So what have been the biggest challenges that your members are seeing flights today. But it's been a little bit of a crazy year Because we of course as aviation first responders flying all over the world were some of the first workers to come in contact with coronavirus and be dealing with it and so a year ago in january of twenty twenty we were already talking with the airline's about following our communicable disease checklist. And make sure that we're getting good information to cruise and having proper espn following all the guidelines would normally follow to try to stop the spread of communicable disease at transportation store. So only about a month later We had we were dealing with a worldwide pandemic so it was an interesting time because air travel fell off by ninety seven percent and all of a sudden our airports were ghost towns and a lot of people this seems like a blip on the radar now but it was being reported everywhere flights taking off with one passenger on board Walking through the airports in none of the concessions are open and tsa is still there but there are counting a handful of passengers each day and today when demand is increasing. We are going to be here to be able to me that demand of the travelling public but at the time. No one was traveling in what we needed to do. Was to keep members safe and also work with our airlines on very liberal sickly policies. Have someone thinks that they are zak. Maybe has come in contact with coronavirus. We work with our allies to make it very clear to workers stay home. You'll be covered. You'll be paid. There were a lot of issues to take on and as we learn more about the virus and we got the federal funding in place. We got some of that. Financial support of the industry. Didn't just collapse all together. We were able to start addressing the safety issues. And i have to say the financial support also as the epa knows was very important continuing the critical infrastructure that our country counts on with their travel. Most people don't think about it but their communities can't survive if they don't have commercial air traffic coming into their communities carrying the. Us mail that carries prescription drugs to four million people a day. We carried ventilators from overseas to help in our hospitals. We carried other Protective equipment that we wouldn't have had otherwise. We carried critical personnel into these communities to be able to help out. And here's a story. That i think about that is not just one story but it's emblematic of why. Air travel is so critical. We had a grandmother who flew across the country to take care of her grandchildren because the two parents were er doctors and they were spending more time addressing the needs in that community. She hadn't been able to travel. She wouldn't have been able to support that family. So that those Critical health care professionals could go to work. Those are all the kinds of things that are critical. And you know. I think about members of congress to frankly who we're going to do their jobs. There were members of congress that. Let's make sure that we have support for all of our communities because i'm a member of congress needs to go home and find out what my constituents stay but i need to go to back to washington in order to make sure that they have it and i can't even fly into an airport. That's closer than ten hours away from where i live. There was a lot of stress and strain on people during that time and we had to work with the airlines very closely to make sure that the mask policies were being put in place we worked with them and supported getting the help of filtration on the airplanes where we could.
