Let's not kid ourselves. A SFO-DEN flight. It's takeoff, roll the beverage cart out and about 75 minutes of nothing else until prepping the cabin for landing.

Yes, I'm probably taking this into semantics territory, but I get so irritated with the weakest interpretations are used for laws that are meant to be used for more egregious violations.

Physically blocking or assaulting an FA or damaging the aircraft....that's what I think "interference with a flight crew" should be used for.

I'm not trying to defend this mother of the year candidate, but this "interference with a flight crew" -- where does it stop?
