People respected other people's religion and opinions 20-30 years ago.  These days, if you have different opinions than someone, they'll boycott you or worse.

There's certainly a market demand for airlines that fly direct to Israel to be accommodating of what chareidim want.  My understanding is the airlines just don't respect us, and figure we don't have a choice of who to fly anyway.

What do you expect the airline to do?

Suppose there was a box you could check if you wanted to sit only next to a man, and they took all those people, and stuffed them in the back five rows, at least to the extent that was possible.  Doesn't seem very onerous. 

And then another box if you wanted to only sit next to a woman, and those are a different 5 rows.

You kick them off as soon as the kvetching starts.

You give them an ultimatum, either sit down and shut up or get off, flying is a privilege not a right.

Thats too complicated. "The seating here isn't good ? No problem, follow me. There's lots of seating back at the terminal"

There is no need to be so strict. There is nothing wrong with a polite request.

I have seen numerous people politely request to be moved next to someone of the same gender and it has almost always worked. Would you want your daughter sitting next to Trump on a plane?

You can not penalize those who request like a mentch for the few who do not. With thousands of flights a day we only hear of a handful which have an issue.
