Mid-flight yoga will certainly not be on South-Korean native, Hyongtae Pae's agenda for a while after he's been asked to pay $43,000 (about N9 million) to United Airlines for a yoga session gone wrong.
Man forced to pay airline N9 million for doing yoga on plane
Pae had been arrested in March shouting and threatening to kill fellow passengers after refusing to sit down during the in-flight meal.
Pae had been arrested in Marchfor shouting and threatening to kill fellow passengers after refusing to sit down during the in-flight meal.
The South-Korean native had wanted to do yoga at the back of the plane instead and became very aggressive, hence his arrest.
At the time of the incident, the Japan-bound flight was forced to return to Hawaii after Pae attempted to head-butt and bite a number of passengers.
After landing, he was taken into into custody and prevented from leaving the island until Monday, when a judge allowed Pae to return home to South Korea.
Though he has to return for sentencing in July, he already pleaded guilty last week to interfering with a flight crew and is expected to be sentenced to about 12 days' time served, on top of the $43,000 fine.
Word of advice - remain on your seat during flights, except to use the rest room but certainly not to do yoga.
