A French tourist has been given a stern warning by an Australian judge to "behave yourself" on airplanes after she apparently tried to open a door in flight to have a cigarette. Sadrine Helene Sellies, 34, was also ordered to post a $1,000 AUD bond that she'll get back as long as she doesn't try something like that again in the next year. Through an interpreter, Sellies told the court she's terrified of flying and consumed alcohol and sleeping pills before walking to the exit, cigarette in hand, and trying to move the handle. She was spotted by a flight attendant and put back in her seat. Sellies said she doesn't remember anything about the flight.
