Some industry experts say flight attendants are better trained to de-escalate confrontations with passengers or better yet, avoid them altogether. Some Chinese airlines want to blacklist rowdy passengers, for example.

The incidents themselves are difficult to track and data may not tell the complete picture because they are based on what airlines report. The International Air Travel Association collected 38,230 reports of unruly passengers between 2007 and 2014, a rate of one report for every 1,530 flights—one for every 1,289 in 2014 alone.

Those figures “significantly underestimate the true extent of the problem” because they don’t include all the world’s airlines, the trade group said.

So don’t be that guy. You’ll regret it.
