You have the same rights in the air
Your rights do not change when you step on an airplane. You should not be subject to harassment or assault of any kind.
It is also the airline’s responsibility to ensure that every passenger is safe and free from harm.
Every passenger should also have an incident-free flight. If an issue does arise, it should be dealt with immediately. If a passenger is causing trouble for other passengers, they should be moved immediately.
If assault does occur, that passsenger should be detained and the incident should be reported to the police, where a report can be filed.
