    本周早些时候, a California-bounded flight departing from New York had to do an emergency landing in Denver after one of the passengers assaulted a flight attendant and broke her nose.

    Brian Hsu, 20, of Irvine, 加利福尼亚州, was charged with assault and interference with a flight crew for the alleged altercation on board an American Airlines flight from New York to Santa Ana, California on October 27.

    The flight attendant inadvertently bumped into Hsu, who was flying first class, and he punched her at least twice.

    麦肯齐·罗斯, 航班上的一名乘客, 说她看到空乘人员在事件发生后走过,“她的面具上有血”, and speculated that the attacker might have been drunk or high.

    与此同时, a photo posted on 推特 似乎显示机组人员和乘客用胶带将这名男子固定在他的座位上.

    He appeared before U.S. District Judge Autumn Spaeth in Santa Ana on Monday and was released after paying a $10,000 键. He is next due in court in Denver on November 15.

    Hsu has been permanently banned from flying with America Airlines.

    ‘This behavior must stop,’ 该公司在一份声明中说.

    Police met the plane at the gate and immediately apprehended Brian Hsu, 20, who was snapped sitting in Denver International Airport in handcuffs by fellow passenger Mackenzie Rose

    Following the altercation, the head of American Airlines, Doug Parker, called it ‘one of the worst displays of unruly behavior we’ve ever witnessed,’ 在一个 Instagram的 post and video.

    ‘Last night, American Airlines had one of the worst displays we’ve seen, when a passenger violently assaulted one of our flight attendants. 谢天谢地, our flight attendant is recovering and we are making sure she and her fellow crew members have the support they need.

    ‘The passenger, 然而, will never be allowed to fly American again and we are doing everything we can to ensure they are prosecuted to the fullest extent possible. But at the end of the day, while these interactions are not the norm, even one is too many, and they must stop.

    The Federal Aviation Authority (少数) announced earlier this year that it would begin to enforce a zero-tolerance policy for unruly passengers after a rise in reports of aggressive behavior on flights.

    The agency said in August it had issued more than $1 million in fines to unruly passengers in 2021, and revealed there have already been more than 5,000 unruly passenger reports this year alone.

    Seventy-five percent of the altercations are mask-use related.
