Description: An apparent extreme "unruly flier" episode has the subject of passenger etiquette back in the news again this week.
The FBI intervened in this latest incident, in which a 60-year-old man is accused of using a racial slur before slapping a crying 2-year-old boy in an effort to quiet the child on a Feb. 8 Delta Air Lines flight from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Atlanta. The man, identified as Joe Rickey Hundley of Hayden, Idaho, is unrelated to the boy, who was the child of a woman sitting near him, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
In addition to the charges Hundley faces, he also is now out of a job because of the incident, The Associated Press reports. Hundley's employer issued a statement saying he no longer works there, but it was unclear if he was fired or resigned.
