The Airplane Seating Arrangement that Triggers 'Air Rage'
The presence of a first-class cabin, and having to walk through it to get to economy, is a triggering factor for "air rage" incidents:

As lead researcher Katherine DeCelles explained to Gizmodo, airplanes are like a miniature version of class-based society. “It’s a small world of the greater society that we live in, though one that’s greatly concentrated,” she said. Traveling by plane is stressful enough, but DeCelles believes that seating inequality on airplanes often serves as “the straw that breaks the camel’s back,” and that air rage can be partly explained and understood through the lens of social inequality.

No Time To Spare [infographic]
'On August 2, 2005, a fully-loaded Air France Airbus A340 arriving from Paris crash-landed at Toronto's Pearson International Airport and caught fire. Only 4 of the 8 exits were usable, yet all 309 people on board made it off the aircraft in two minutes, before it was consumed by flames. Here, five of the passengers recount their escape.'
