The FAA says there's only so much flight attendants can handle when it comes to dealing with unruly passengers and it's calling on airports to help. 

We've seen a surge in violent and disruptive passengers since the pandemic began, and it's largely because of people refusing to wear masks. 

Just last week, a passenger on a Frontier flight groped two flight attendants and punched a third. He was taped to his seat for the rest of the flight and arrested when the plane landed. 

The FAA has indefinitely extended a zero-tolerance policy on unruly passengers.
