NEW DELHI: An inebriated woman passenger created such a ruckus on Qatar Airways’ Doha-Bali flight that the plane had to be diverted to Chennai. According to sources, the Iranian lady reportedly unlocked her sleeping husband’s mobile phone by putting his finger on its scanner and then she realized that he was allegedly cheating on her.
The woman, who was a few drinks down by then, reportedly got into a fight with her husband and also misbehaved with crew members who tried to pacify her. With the situation getting out of hand, the pilot decided to divert the plane to Chennai. Once there, the Iranian family – husband, wife and their young child – were offloaded there and the plane resumed its journey to Bali.
Qatar Airways said in a statement, “In respect of passenger privacy we do not comment on individual cases.”
