This notion that "support animals" are indispensable for certain people to function normally is a bit strange to me.

Still, I am no mental health expert. So, I will defer to the professionals that the presence of an animal makes all the emotional difference.

The pervasiveness of "support animals" on commercial flights has risen in recent years. I documented several incidents in my earlier book AIR RAGE: CRISIS IN THE SKIES.

This will all be exacerbated by increased security hassles in airports, where it has been reported that the TSA can still not locate more than 25% of prohibited items.

The best hope is that the illusion of aviation security persists, and the traveling public continues to buy it.

Clearly that was the case for this guy, who went after the woman who reclined her seat back into "his space".

In what may have been a meth-fueled attack, a Brazilian passenger bit a seatmate, and then died after he was restrained on-board.
