An American Airlines' pilot was assaulted last week as a flight from Miami to Los Angeles was about to take off.
It seems that when asked to fix his safety belt a passenger was asleep and inebriated. A pilot and crew member attempted to de–plane him as he was clearly a danger. At this point the pilot was attacked by the passenger's brother and suffered a black eye.
The moral of the story.
The new security doors to the cockpit work both ways. If you are a pilot and have an unruly traveller stay up front. Let the cabin staff and helpful passengers sort it out!
