Sure did that. The tars in the smoke clogged the sense lines in temperature and pressurization controllers. I've seen brown streaks from the outflow valve clear to the tail of the airplane on a DC-10. Cigarette smoke was very damaging to airplanes.
If that is true then clearly we need to test passengers for this dangerous drug and deny boarding to all nicotine users. If they have no more self-discipline that that I don't want them on my airplane.
By the way, scientific research consists of finding out what the facts are and coming to conclusions based on those facts. It sounds like you are looking for quotes from us to support the conclusions you reached before beginning research.

Here is one example slamclick..
Surprisingly, alcohol is not the main cause of air rage, with drunkenness only accounting for 25% of all incidents.
Instead anxiety through delays, cramped conditions and restrictions such as banned smoking are the leading causes. http://www.flighthealth.org/air-rage.htm
Im not seeking argument,just informed clarification.No need for the hostility.

Quoting Supermatelot (Reply 7):
Could somebody please explain the physics behind the fact that if an aircraft laden with birds that was above mtow could still not take off ieven if all the birds 'flew' at the time of rotation???
I may have this wrong but the birds are just transferring their weight from the sticks they were presumably perched on to the air they are flying in. Said air is still carried by the plane, thus plane carries the birds even if they fly in the inside space.
The air in a 744 weighs over a ton and the aircraft has to lift that too.
"There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots."
The first paragraph of your link seems to otherwise:
"In reality, incidences of air rage are no more common than 20yrs ago, only now there is a heightened awareness within the industry to report such cases."
Smoking was banned on airlines les than 20 years ago.
If smoking restrictions cause air-rage, then that's the sole responsibility of the person who made that choice ... has nothing to do with the fact smoking is restricted. Either don't smoke, or don't fly, if that's how you are.
I'd rather be on the ground wishing I was in the air, than in the air wishing I was on the ground!
