Then there’s his wife.
“I don’t know how she’s going to forgive me,” he added.
Khelya, 22, and his wife were among 311 passengers on board a Thomas Cook flight, which set out from Manchester International Airport.
Several hours into the flight, after his wife changed seats to get away from him, Khelya appealed unsuccessfully to a crew member to see her.
“I’m going to kill you and I’m going to kill everyone after,” Khelya told a crew member, using an expletive, according to prosecutors.
As flight attendants moved a handcuffed Khelya to the back of the plane, he spat at other passengers, compelling crew members to use blankets to protect them, prosecutors said.
Diverted to the LF Wade International Airport, the flight was greeted by police officers, who escorted Khelya off the plane.
On Tuesday, Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined Khelya $2,000 (£1300) for being drunk on the aircraft and another $1,000 for his abusive behavior towards flight staff. If Khelya fails to pay the fines, he faces four months in a Bermuda jail.
An attorney for Khelya could not immediately be reached for comment.
