According to their FAA's data, there have been 3,509 incidents of unruly passengers on board flights so far this year, as of July 20.

There have also been 2,605 mask-related incidents as passengers refuse to cover their faces as required amid the pandemic.

Of the 3,509 incidents, 581 have resulted in investigations by the agency—more than three times the number of FAA investigations launched for the whole year of 2020, which was just 183.

It is a federal offense to interfere with the duties of a crew member during a flight. The FAA said security violations are excluded from the figures as these cases are handled by the TSA.
