On August 2, 2018, The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) hosted a panel discussion on efforts to combat an increase in unruly, and often drunken, passengers on board flights.

Discussants included industry experts from The Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), International President, Sara Nelson, Airlines Pilots Association (ALPA), law enforcement, airport personnel, the FAA, and United Airlines Global Security Airlines Representative. The panel talked about the increase in violent and unsavory passenger incidents and ways to de-escalate and prevent such situations.
