Bad behavior could cost you almost $100,000.
That’s what happened to an unruly Hawaiian Airlines passenger.
According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, a federal judge ordered a passenger to pay $97, 817.
That’s because his disruptive behavior forced the pilot of a Honolulu to New York flight to turn the plane around.
Officials said it was a rocky flight before it even took off due to his offensive behavior.
Reportedly he threatened his girlfriend, her kids, other passengers, and crew members once the flight was in the air.
He also made contact with a flight attendant with the back of his hand.
Now, he needs to shell out that money to cover the cost of fuel, maintenance, ground crew, replacement crew, landing fee and other costs, like rebooking passengers.
It doesn’t cover the almost $50,000 in meal vouchers the airline gave to delayed passengers.
Almost $98,000 may seem like a lot, but a report by NBC Bay Area says unruly passengers can cost airlines up to $200,000.
