in business class, he downed two glasses each of champagne, white
wine, and red wine.
Chung became furious after flight attendants refused to serve
him any more alcohol. Chung reportedly threw his food and plates at
them. He seemed to calm down, but after a trip to the lavatory,

raving for another 30 minutes, to the extent that other passengers
demanded that they should gag him. Finally, Chung passed out.
