The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a strict video warning for disruptive passengers Tuesday saying that unruly behavior can distract pilots, ultimately posing a danger to the entire aircraft.
The video "You Don’t Want Your Pilots Distracted: Unruly Behavior Doesn’t Fly" – which was first released to CNN – is the agency's latest attempt to put an end to the flood of violent and disruptive outbursts on airplanes, which can range from throwing luggage, threatening passengers, refusing to wear a face mask to hitting flight attendants in the face.
In the roughly 30-second clip, the FAA uses recordings of flight crews warning officials of emergency situations in the cabin.
In one recording you can overhear one person saying: "Unruly passenger, we need to get off the airplane."

Another person in the recording replies: "Do you need authorities on the ground?"
In the video description, the FAA reiterated that "it is not safe to disrupt a flight" and that the FAA has a zero-tolerance policy for not abiding by cabin crew instructions.
The FAA's zero–tolerance policy was adopted in January after the agency saw a "disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior," the FAA said.
