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.
