Really? You think another tenner on the fare discourages anyone?

At my last airline the most troublesome route was UK to Montego Bay (so a high fare to begin with), often involving "premium" passengers (so even more expensive), this was despite the airline also offering a vast number of cheap Balearic routes and similar as the main fayre.

It's not a simplistic situation of "poor and drunk passengers behave worse than any other "better off" demographic". It's way more complicated than that, with all sorts of cultural, societal and operational issues at play.
