Flight attendants are taking self defense classes to deal with unruly passengers!
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 currently running with four times the amount of classes and double the number of attendees as before.
Some are starting to believe that the four-hour course should be mandatory for all flight workers! The FAA received more than 3,800 reports of unruly passengers in 2021.
