Time for US to counter the bully at 30,000 feet

Given the potential for escalated risk or conflict, the United States should pursue a measured response to any instances of in-air bullying. This could include using international laws and regulations in consultation with other parties to facilitate de-escalation. Diplomatic strategies could be employed to initiate communications and understanding. As the bullying does not necessarily have any physical repercussions, the onus could be on the United States to ensure that the other party does not resort to physical violence. Additionally, the United States could take the initiative to bring together stakeholders to discuss the issue and better understand possible solutions. Ultimately, all diplomatic efforts should be used to bring a solution to the conflict in order to ensure safe and secure travel at 30,000 feet.
