Unruly passengers

Comment on "Airline, police unite to end tarmac intrusions" (China Daily, April 19)

Flight delays and furious passengers are a fact of life in most airports around the world. Acts of violence or invasion of the airport's tarmac by passengers should be handled firmly by the police with severe punishments. It is incredible to hear that angry passengers in Shanghai who invaded the tarmac have only received compensation instead of being jailed.

Air China has signed a cooperation agreement with the police to give "more attention" to handling such potentially dangerous actions. But in my opinion, the police should have enough personnel at airports to be able to handle such incidents without special requests.
