Traveling during COVID-19 is different. People fly again. They follow new rules.

US officials say that passengers now are more aggressive. Passengers must agree that they will wear masks during a flight. They do not always want to do it. They are angry. They attack a flight attendants. Flight attendants get special training to know what to do when a passenger is angry.

There are many events when something bad happens. A passenger can pay money of up to 37,000 dollars if he does not follow the rules or is aggressive.

Difficult words: aggressive (a person who is very angry, and he wants to attack somebody else), flight attendant (a person whose job is to help passengers on a plane), fine (money which someone must pay when he does something bad or wrong).
