The distraught reaction of an Iranian woman who discovered her husband had been having an affair in the middle of a flight caused the plane's pilot to make an emergency landing, The New York Post reported.
The woman, who was flying with her husband and child on a trip from Doha to Bali last weekend, reportedly used her sleeping husband’s finger to unlock his phone, uncovering evidence that he had cheated on her.
The woman, who had drank alcohol during the flight, began arguing with her husband and disobeyed flight crew when they attempted to calm her down, Newsweek reported.
The woman caused such a ruckus that the pilot decided to make an emergency landing in Chennai, India.
In Chennai, the three family members deplaned and the flight took off again, continuing to Bali. From Chennai, the family flew to Kuala Lumpur and then back to Doha.
India’s Central Industrial Security Force confirmed the incident.
“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 in-flight,” an official said, according to the Post.
