An American was dragged out of an airplane for causing a major disturbance. According to Korean Air, around 2 pm on July 27, the flight from Incheon International Airport to San Francisco was delayed for an hour and 40 minutes due to a 30-year-old American woman.

The woman who originally booked an economy seat, sat down in the business class seating instead. The woman refused to move and caused a disturbance when the flight attendant told her, “You have to sit in your designated seat.”

The airport police had to finally drag her out of the plane. The Korean airport authorities said they had no choice but to drag her out of the plane as she screamed “U.S. MARSHALS!”, “DDOS KOREAN AIR,” “NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT,” and threw up peace signs.

The police said, “the woman was transferred to a hospital first as she seemed to be suffering from mental illness. We plan to investigate her as soon as the hospital completes their investigation.”
