NEW DELHI: Hell hath no fury like a woman cheated, especially if she happens to be tipsy and 37,000 feet above ground when discovering this shocker from the man she loves. Qatar Airways‘ Doha-Bali nonstop flight on Sunday (November 5) had to be diverted to Chennai because an inebriated Iranian woman created ruckus after she found out that her husband was cheating on her when she unlocked her sleeping husband’s phone by doing his finger scan and saw some content on it, say sources.
The husband was the obvious target of her anger and copassengers and crew members who tried to pacify her also became the target of her ire. Her uproar compelled the pilots to land the plane mid-way in Chennai. Qatar Airways Doha-Bali nonstop flight is almost 10-hour long while Chennai is mid-way .
After offloading the Iranian couple and their child in Chennai, the Boeing 777 operating Qatar Airways’ flight QR 962 resumed its journey to Denpasar Bali. Since there was no security issue and given the reasoning offered by the woman, authorities in Chennai kept the fa mily at the airport. “They were taken to a room maintained by immigration authorities at Chennai airport,” said a source. Once the woman got a little sober, the family was put on a flight to Kuala Lumpur.
According to the CISF official, the couple headed back home without making it to the beach town of Bali. They then had to take a circuitous way back home by first flying to Malaysia and from there to Doha.
A senior official of Central Industrial Security Forceconfirmed the case of unruly passenger. “A lady along with her husband and a child, all Iranian nationals, were offloaded by Qatar Airline as the lady passenger, who was intoxicated, misbehaved with crew members inflight,” the official said.
Qatar Airways said in a statement, “In respect of passenger privacy , we do not comment on individual cases.”
