They include an alleged attack by a Southwest passenger on a flight attendant during a journey from Sacramento to San Diego, California on May 23.

Footage of the scrap showed a passenger throwing repeated punches at the crew member, until a man intervened.

The flight attendant, who reportedly had two of her teeth knocked out, was seen with blood streaming down her face.

Chris Mainz, a spokesman for Southwest, accused the passenger of repeatedly ignoring standard instructions such as wearing a seat belt.

Booze had been due to return on June 1.

The company first suspended its alcohol drinks service in March last year, to minimise interaction between crew and passengers during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a memo to flight attendants seen by CNN, managing director Brady Byrnes flight attendants are on the “front lines every day” enforcing policies like federally-required face masks.

He said: “Over the past week we’ve seen some of these stressors create deeply disturbing situations on board aircraft.

“Let me be clear: American Airlines will not tolerate assault or mistreatment of our crews.”

He said the airline will move “cautiously and deliberately” when restoring its practices from before Covid-19.

Mr Byrnes added: “We also recognise that alcohol can contribute to atypical behaviour from customers onboard and we owe it to our crew not to potentially exacerbate what can already be a new and stressful situation for our customers.”
