The Star - A Japan-bound aircraft returned to Hawaii because of a violent South Korean passenger who wanted to do yoga instead of sit in his seat, the FBI said. The pilot of the March 26 United Airlines flight from Honolulu International Airport to Narita International Airport turned the plane around after hearing that Hyongtae Pae was yelling at crew members and shoving his wife, the FBI said in a criminal complaint. Pae told the FBI he didn’t want to sit in his seat during the meal service, so he went to the back of the plane to do yoga and meditate. He became angry when his wife and flight attendants told him to return to his seat. “Pae pushed his wife because she was trying to make him stop,” the complaint said. “He felt that she was siding with the flight crew.” He tried to head-butt and bite U.S. marines who were passengers on the flight and tried to force him back to his seat, Assistant U.S. Attorney Darren Ching said at Pae’s detention hearing Wednesday. According to the complaint, he threatened to kill passengers and was yelling that there is no god. Pae went into a rage because he felt the flight crew was ordering him around, Ching said.  Outside of court, Kim said his client is a 72-year-old retired farmer who travelled from South Korea to celebrate his 40th wedding anniversary with a Hawaii vacation. It was the couple’s first trip to Hawaii. Pae only recently took up yoga to help with anxiety, Kim said, adding that he was sleep-deprived during the vacation. Pae told the FBI he hadn’t been able to sleep in 11 days.


I hate people who get on planes and can’t act like normal people. Nobody wants to be on a plane, crammed into this metal tube that is screaming across the sky 35,000 feet in the air. When Adam and Eve invented the universe, they didn’t plan on having airplanes. They defy every natural law. Us humans are supposed to be on the ground, birds are supposed to be in the sky. But yet really smart people found a way to get us from here to California in 5 hours without the use of a covered wagon and oxen, and it’s probably the greatest invention besides Internet porn. So when someone starts acting up on the plane, they should be tossed out the window and not given the seat as a floatation device. Flying consists of 200 strangers cramming into a plane, all just trying to get from point A to point B without crashing onto an island with a smoke monster or without a man biting you, is that so hard to ask? You sit in your seat, you pop a few pills that you acquired illegally, and you shut the fuck up. You don’t make small talk with the person next to you unless it’s Rich Homie Quan, and you don’t get to the back of the plane to do yoga. You sit down and shut up. If a passenger can’t follow the most simplest of airplane societal norms, just toss them off the plane. So be it.
