United Airlines has sent a memo to its flight crew members: enough with the duct tape.
After a handful of recent incidents that saw unruly passengers duct-taped to their seats, United told employees to use different tactics – including de-escalation or other in-flight safety tools.
The memo said “alternative measures such as tape should never be used.”
