    Gee, I thought the purpose of having the pax troop through First Class was to engender envy not rage, and to incentivize the Y pax to work toward F seats in front of the curtain. :D

    Seriously, though, on single aisle planes, how else are you going to board? Sending all Y pax to enter through the tail exit (if there is one) is hardly practical and in most airports may be impossible as the gates aren't designed for multiple boarding doors.

    (And I wonder about people who spend time analyzing "millions of flights" for a study of this nature.)

    From where I sit this report is pure hogwash.
    Most air rage incidents seems to involve alcohol in one form or the other (which is mentioned nowhere in the article)
    How can such a claim be made without comparing the relative size of the cabins or even routes etc etc.
    Are there less incidents on singles class planes??:rolleyes:

    Like how they indulge in CYA comments like as
    With
    first class cabins getting more lush and larger, the risk of air rage could grow???

    Correlation is NOT causation!

    People with white hair have more heart attacks but white hair doesn't cause heart attacks.

    Unfortunately, that's been the case for years now.
