There were 159 people on the US-bound flight, with many of them commenting on social media that it looked like “ beginning of a zombie movie”.
The 55-year-old passenger bit the hand of a crew member, slightly injuring it, while he was “drunk” as an airline spokesman told Agence France-Presse ” All Nippon Airways” which also operated the route.

The incident forced the plane's pilots to turn around over the Pacific Ocean to land at the Japanese capital's Haneda Airport, where the passenger handed himself over to police, according to ANA.< /p>
According to the Japanese network TBS, the passenger who was arrested later told the police that he “does not remember at all” what happened.
