Smoking is a bad habit that not only damages your health but also drains your finances. Even if you are a smoker, you should know that there are many places that do not allow you to smoke and one of these is on an airplane. The flight attendants even remind you before the flight takes off!

However, this man from Iran was caught smoking on an AirAsia flight last August 23. According to NST, the incident happened about 7.55am, when the man who was identified as 35-year-old Ali Firooz decided to smoke in the toilet on the plane. He departed from Tehran on a transit flight to Kuala Lumpur while flying to Netherlands to look for job.

The man was charged in Sepang Magistrate’s Court and pleaded guilty after the charge was read to him. The suspect looked calm but exhausted, as Magistrate Norul Fitri Hamdan sentenced him to two days in jail and a fine of RM2,500 after his lawyer said that he was remorseful for his actions.

Firooz may face up to a maximum fine of RM 2,500 and imprisonment for up to a year. 

Meanwhile, another 18-year-old student was also charged for the same offence as he was caught smoking on an AirAsia flight from Sibu to KLIA2. He was sentenced to two days in jail and a RM1,500 fine, according to The Sun Daily.
