With 2003 being the 100th anniversary of modern aviation, Passenger Behaviour was published at a milestone for the aviation industry. Remarkable achievements in engineering have made air travel highly accessible within the span of a single lifetime. However, when evolutionary barriers are exceeded various penalties are exacted. The most common experienced by air passengers include motion sickness, jetlag and increased arousal and stress at different stages of flight. Air travel also brings us into closer contact with strangers, making our examination and understanding of the social psychology of behaviour within groups (among passengers) especially relevant. This book examines a wide range of topics that help the reader to acquire a psychological understanding of how air travel impacts on human relationships; behaviour as well as physiological functions. Written by leading authorities in their areas, it is intended primarily for those with an interest in passenger behaviour and those who work professionally in commercial aviation. This includes pilots, cabin crew, ground staff, airline and airport managers, aviation psychologists, human factors specialists, aerospace medical/nursing personnel and aircraft designers and manufacturers. As air travel being an integral part of most people's lives, this book will also be of interest to anyone who travels either on a frequent or infrequent basis.

This book is based on the behavioural intention of public transport passengers and the relationship between those factors in Indonesia. The conceptual model in this book explains behavioural intentions of paratransit passengers which can result in recommendations to unravel the complexity of the congestion problem from consumer behaviour perspective. Based on the results of survey research on behavioural intention of public transport users in Jabodetabek, Indonesia, the result of the study is presented in a model that describes the factors that influence. This book is recommended for academics who wish to gain knowledge about the phenomenon of consumer behaviour, for regulators whose duty is to make a decision and determine the strategic steps to overcome congestion and researchers who want to develop their knowledge and provide solutions related to congestion from the perspective of consumer behaviour.

This book presents a thorough analysis of the EU provisions and legal framework of passenger rights in the civil aviation field. It provides both a theoretical and practical view of the initiatives that have been taken in this field. This includes initiatives taken by the European Commission (EC) with the aim to improve the protection of passengers and by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) with regard to jurisprudence. The book points out the goals that have been obtained so far, as well as the goals that still need to be pursued. Particular attention is paid to EU institutions that have been created ad hoc to supervise aviation safety and harmonize the various safety procedures of the EU Member States. Recent and upcoming packages of important safety and security measures are examined in detail. The book gives examples of current applications of legislative instruments and presents readers with the tools to gain a deeper understanding of the legal, practical and theoretical aspects of this important topic in aviation.

This dynamic textbook illustrates how behaviour analysis theory can be used to alter how people behave in the workplace. It takes a highly practical look at management strategies, showing how managers can identify, measure and analyze undesirable behaviour. Using real life case study examples to show the implementation of effective change strategies, the authors investigate a range of situations from behavioural self-management, to changing the behaviour of large groups.

A survey of IATA found that between 2007 and 2017, approximately 66.000 episodes were reported on board aircraft as a result of sexual violence. These passengers are now labeled in the aviation world as unruly and disruptive. They are more than rude bullies. However, while crews were being trained to handle potentially dangerous security and safety events caused by unruly passengers, customers were not as fully updated on their rights as customers and especially on their duties as passengers. When you’re sharing an armrest at thirty thousand feet with a rude neighbor, reactions may not always be appropriate according to the context.

So many people have become dispirited, fatalistic, or angry about crime instead of seeing crime problems as setbacks, challenges, or even opportunities. This book sets out a clear, systematic, and demonstrably successful strategy for reducing the temptations and opportunities for crime in the area of public transportation. Instead of changing the traveling public or the communities which public transport serves, what needs to change are the immediate circumstances and surroundings presented to people. Services offered can be rethought and reinvigorated, recruiting assistance from other agencies, staff, and even from those who ride the transportation system. Its a matter of making the transition from being reactive to being ahead of the game. This study is backed up by concrete examples of how, why, and where smart-thinking has worked before to outflank transportation crime. Contents include: crime and disorder on public transport; understanding local transport crime problems; anti-soc
