Airline Passenger Violence Continues
Violence at our nation's airports, a topic covered by the WVPI on this blog last week, is continuing.
Two troubling events occurred on Labor Day, September 6, 2021 on opposite ends of the country.
FORT LAUDERDALE-HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
A 46-year-old Chicago woman reportedly told airport personnel there was a bomb in her checked bag at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Reports indicate that the woman and her family arrived late at the gate and was refused entry onto the JetBlue airliner. She reacted by allegedly cursing at airline employees, and made the bomb threat.
