After consuming six
drinks in the first hour of a Korean Air flight from Jakarta to
Incheon, a university professor reportedly caused a disturbance and
even tried to rush the cockpit. Police identified the 46-year-old
man by his last name of Chung.
Chung was allegedly in a bad mood when he boarded the flight in
Jakarta, Indonesia according to media reports. After sitting down
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,
again became agitated.
'shoved and throttled' a male flight attendant so the crew
restrained him for about five minutes until he seemed to calm down.
They released him only to have him charge the cockpit. He was
physically returned to his seat and restrained again.
Flight attendants reported that he continued his ranting and
raving for another 30 minutes, to the extent that other passengers
demanded that they should gag him. Finally, Chung passed out.
He was taken into custody by police at Incheon International
Airport and was questioned and released. His in-flight misconduct
may cost him dearly, with fines, or even jail time if
"It appears I made mistakes while drunk out of my mind," Chung
told police, according to media reports.
