U.S. authorities have confirmed that the Indonesian citizen is currently in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement pending removal.
According to reports last November, Kurniawan was due to be released from a federal correctional facility in Texas and was likely to face deportation.
On Nov. 6, he was released and immediately taken into U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody, first at a processing center in El Paso and then to a facility in Otero County.
According to the New York Post, Kurniawan has been trying to purchase seats for himself in first class abroad out of fear that he will be given the worst seats on the plane.
No word yet on whether this request has been fulfilled.
