Travel Tip of the Day: Listen to the Flight Crew

Flight-AttendantsListen to the Flight Crew
Recently, a United Airlines plane from Honolulu to Japan was forced to turn around after a passenger tried to practice yoga in the aisle and refused to return to his seat. Passenger Hyongtae Pae, age 72, allegedly started shouting at members of the crew and pushing his wife when they told him he needed to stop practicing yoga at the back of the plane and return to his seat. You hear stories like this all the time, in which passengers disobey the flight crew. That’s not a good idea because the passenger almost always ends up getting escorted off the plane and arrested—like Pae was.

Pae was released on a $25,000 bond on the condition that he undergo a mental health evaluation. You can read the full story here, but the bottom line is that you should listen to the flight crew’s instructions. The crew is looking out for your safety and the safety of the passengers around you.
