2021 Flight Attendants Face Passenger Bad Behavior –
Airline Cabin Crew Stress Grows at Unprecedented Rates
2021 Dramatic Rise in Passenger Assaults
“Flight attendants reported facing extensive verbal abuse. This included abuse from visibly drunk passengers, passengers yelling and swearing in response to masking directions, and often aggressively challenging flight crew working to ensure compliance with federal rules. Many respondents recounted aggressive incidents.”
Many individuals will begin to drink or drug to cope with increasing stress. This is not the answer – and it almost always makes any situation far worse.

Intense Work Stress and Well-Being
Consistent with previous studies reporting reduced physical and psychological wellbeing in relation to workplace abuse (Ballard et al., 2006; Gunnarsdottir et al., 2006; Lee et al., 2008), we observed strong associations between all types of abuse and depression, sleep disturbances, fatigue, workplace injuries, and musculoskeletal conditions among cabin crew. Associations were generally strongest among those experiencing abuse with greater frequency in the past year.The Impact of Workplace Harassment on Health in a Working Cohort
‘Unprecedented Rise’ in
“In the first six months of 2021, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has investigated more than 600 incidents involving unruly passengers. This was nearly double the number in the previous two years combined.” From Flight Attendants Grapple with ‘Unprecedented Rise’ in Unruly Passengers
These incidents included shoving, kicking seats, throwing trash at flight crew, defiling the restroom in response to crewmember instructions, and following flight crew through the airport to continue yelling and harassment.
Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) Survey
According to a survey published July 29, 2021 by the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA): There has been an “unprecedented rise” in incidents of passengers acting out on planes. As flights resume after months away due to pandemic restrictions – more incidents are occurring.
The AFA Flight Attendant Survey found that over 85% of all respondents had dealt with unruly passengers in the first half of 2021. More than half (58%) had experienced at least five incidents in the first six months of 2021. A shocking 17 percent reported experiencing a physical incident.

Airline Professionals Alcohol and Drug Rehab Treatment
Flight Attendants experience high stress situations daily. The work demands (and stress) for flight attendants, especially in the last 12 months, have skyrocketed.
Functional alcoholics will begin to increasingly drink to cope. However, the health effects of consuming large daily amounts of alcohol will catch up with the individual – sooner or later.
No one wants to take time off work for rehab. But in the long run – taking the time to take care of yourself by seeking treatment is time well spent.
Discovering sobriety and wellness – and the improvement in the quality of life – is a joyful experience!

Get Help Before Hitting a Wall
Red Flag: If you are finding that the only way to get through the day is to drink or drug – it is time to ‘stop everything’ and re-evaluate what is happening. Using alcohol or substances to cope is very tempting! However, using alcohol or substances as an aid to perform on the job never ends well.
Solution: Look deeper and find the source of the anxiety, depression or trauma that is at the root of coping difficulties and the use of chemical ‘crutches’.
At New Start Recovery Solutions, we specialize in Dual Diagnosis treatment. We understand that to achieve life-long sustainable recovery – any underlying emotional and mental health issues must be treated at the same time as the alcohol or substance abuse. A major goal in our rehab treatment is to help patients resolve traumas that may be driving substance abuse.
Recovery treatment includes individual treatment plans and counseling, group counseling and personalized medication protocol (when needed). Other elements of our whole person treatment include holistic practices, such as mindfulness relapse prevention, nutrition, yoga, and meditation.
