Crowds have never been bigger in America's airports.

For the first time I can recall in 20+ years, there wasn't a major air rage incident reported.

Sure there were some loud, obnoxious passengers. Yet, nothing that classifies as big news.

This is a good development.

Possibly the raising of the penalties and consequences for committing air rage are serving as strong incentives for folks to behave.

Time will tell: the holiday travel season is still ahead of us.
