WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – American Airlines’ Chief Executive Doug Parker raised the alarm on Thursday about violent and disruptive incidents aboard U.S. aircrafts following an assault on a flight attendant. This prompted a flight divert.

Parker posted a video on Instagram saying that “this type of behaviour must stop.” American Airlines won’t tolerate any type of inflight or airport misconduct.

American reported that Wednesday’s New York to Santa Ana flight had been diverted to Denver by passengers who assaulted flight attendants. U.S. airlines are reporting a record number violent incidents as the regulators promise a “zero tolerance” approach.
