Four additional airline passengers may be slapped with hefty fines for allegedly disobeying flight attendants and flouting federal regulations, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). 

The passengers are facing proposed civil penalties ranging from $7,500 to $15,500 as part of the FAA’s zero-tolerance policy, which was created in January after the agency saw an increase in "disturbing" incidents involving unruly passengers. 

The four latest incidents stem from flights in February.
