    Thankfully I have never experienced Air Rage on any of my flights, the worse that I have experienced:
    Passengers rushing to board(actually running around, over and through fellow passengers and jumping over chairs and luggage to be the first to board) even though the boarding announcements state that they are boarding by seat assignment they still rush as though there will be a prize for being the first on board.

    Parents letting their kids run up and down the boarding bridge as though they are on the playground.

    Getting to my seat only to find the overhead bin crammed with luggage belonging to a fellow passenger who is in a seat four rows away, and my assigned seat is in the emergency exit row.

    Getting to my assigned seat only to find someone else sitting there who when you point out that they are in the wrong seat either use the "I don't speak English" look or they just ignore me altogether. In one case the guy who snagged my window seat was trying to walking over me to get to the aisle after we landed. I had to use my "School Teacher's" tone in telling him to wait, he seemed to understand and sat back down to wait. He was not happy about it but he sat back down none the less.

    Worcester, MA man allegedly assaulted Muslim airline worker

    http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/01/26/mass-man-arrested-after-allegedly-assaulting-muslim-airline-employee/cUoERmaKCbiAAFFPXXIn9N/story.html


    "A 57-year-old Worcester man has been arrested on hate crime charges for allegedly assaulting a Muslim airline employee at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced Thursday.

    Robin Rhodes is accused of approaching a Delta employee who was wearing a hijab as she sat in her office in the airline’s sky lounge in terminal 2, Brown said in a statement.
    It was not known if Rhodes had hired a lawyer, and he did not return a call seeking comment late Thursday night. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
    According to prosecutors, Delta employee Rabeeya Khan, who wears a hijab, was sitting in her office in the lounge when Brown, who had just arrived from Aruba and was awaiting a connecting flight to Massachusetts, approached the door and began harassing her.

    Prosecutors said Rhodes asked Khan, “Are you [expletive] sleeping? Are you praying? What are you doing?” He then allegedly punched the door, which struck the back of Khan’s chair.
    Khan asked Rhodes what she had done to provoke the outburst, and Rhodes continued his profane tirade, according to the statement.
    He said to her, “You did nothing but I am going to kick your [expletive] ass,” the statement said.
    Rhodes then allegedly kicked Khan in the leg and blocked her from leaving the office when she tried to escape, prosecutors said. She later ran out of the office when someone approached to calm Rhodes down.
    But he allegedly followed her and got down on his knees in a mocking imitation of a Muslim at prayer, the statement said.
    “[Expletive] Islam, [Expletive] ISIS, Trump is here now,” the release quoted Rhodes as saying. “He will get rid of all of you. You can ask Germany, Belgium and France about these kind of people. You will see what happens.”

    we r at magic kingdom today...now on a lunch break.
    we just watched a hateful confrontation of a man verbally assaulting a family of hasidic (sp?) jews.
    it was ugly and ridiculous.
    disney security intervened and then the man was cuffed and hauled away.
    hate is so freaking ugly.
    all at the "happiest place on earth"

    It becomes scary when people think it's okay or that they have a right to abuse others. I don't expect conditions to improve any time soon. So sad!

    OMG. How can people be so ignorant and hateful? Hope this guy gets the full 4 years. I don't think I would want to meet him on Aruba. Maybe they will put him on a no fly list as well. Andrea, Hasidic Jews are very non-confrontational, very religious people so this guy was way off base. I hope Disney will ban him from the park after his stay in jail. Peoples differences should be celebrated as long as they are peaceful differences. I enjoy speaking with and learning about other peoples customs and beliefs.

    I am disgusted by all hatred. The incident in the airport from the guy from my home state is hateful and I hope he gets whats coming to him in jail. Maybe he will be "lucky" and get a Muslim for a cellmate. May he rot in jail!

    We certainly are going backwards as a society and that makes me sad as I have a seven year old son.
