A plane passenger who spied on her husband’s phone and discovered he was having an affair mid-flight caused such a commotion the flight had to make an emergency landing.
The Iranian woman, who was with her husband and their young child on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Bali on Sunday, unlocked her sleeping hubby’s phone by putting his finger on the home button and found evidence he was cheating on her, the Times of India reported.
The woman, who had reportedly been drinking alcohol, then started a fight with her husband and “misbehaved” when flight crew tried to calm her down, according to the paper.
The situation then got “out of hand” and the pilot made the decision to divert to Chennai, India. The family of three were offloaded at Chennai airport and the plane continued its journey to Bali.

As there was no security issue, the family were soon able to fly to Kuala Lumpur, where they boarded a flight back to Doha.
In a statement, an official from India’s Central Industrial Security Force official 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,” the official said.
“They were sent to Kuala Lumpur by Batik Air flight 6019 for further travel to Doha.”
Qatar Airways told the Times of India: “In respect of passenger privacy we do not comment on individual cases.”
Fight between cheating husband and angry wife forces Bali bound flight to land in Chennai
Marital discord is hard to deal with, but it’s much harder when you’re surrounded by tens of people and that too mid-air. However, not everyone believes so. And certainly not this couple from Iran who had a loud and unpleasant argument on a flight from Doha to Bali, Indonesia.
The couple were on board the Qatar Airways flight QR-962 with a child. While the man was sleeping, his wife went through his phone suspecting him of infidelity.
Her suspicions were proved right when she apparently found that he was indeed cheating on her.
What ensued was a fight, and even as the cabin crew tried to calm down the couple, they reportedly did not listen.
The woman was also reported to be drunk, and the fight continued to grow uglier. The couple allegedly misbehaved with some of the cabin crew as well.
At this point, the captain of the flight requested an unprecedented landing at the Chennai airport due to the unruly couple.
The flight landed in Chennai around 10am on Sunday. The family was made to de-board the flight and as the couple did not have Indian visas, they were kept at a detention centre.
The couple spent the day there. After they had reasonably calmed down and the woman was sober, they were sent back to Doha on board an Batik Air flight around 10.30pm.
While the incident may come across as absurd to the layperson, things like these are not that uncommon.
According to The International Air Transport Association (IATA) figures till the year 2015, 10,854 unruly passenger incidents were reported to IATA in 2014. This figure translates to mean that one incident like this occurs every 1,205 flights.
The report also said, “The majority of incidents involved verbal abuse, failure to follow lawful crew instructions and other forms of anti-social behavior. A significant proportion (11%) of reports indicated physical aggression towards passengers or crew or damage to the aircraft. Alcohol or drug intoxication was identified as a factor in 23% of cases, though in the vast majority of instances these were consumed prior to boarding or from personal supply without knowledge of the crew.”

Things got really awkward on a flight to Bali after the plane made an emergency landing so flight attendants could remove a woman who had just found out her husband was having an affair.
The passenger was spying on her husband’s phone while he was sleeping on a Qatar Airways plane during a flight from Doha to Bali and caused a massive scene on the plane, The Times of India reported. The woman, who had been drinking, reportedly began a fight with her sleeping spouse and was rude to the flight crew as they were trying to calm her down. The situation “got out of hand,” which led the pilot to divert the plane to land in Chennai, India. The woman, her husband and their son were escorted off the plane and the flight resumed to Bali without them.
An official from India’s Central Industrial Security Force confirmed the incident with a statement. “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,” the official said.
Because there was no security issue, the family was able to board a flight back to Doha.
This is not the first time a family has been kicked off of a flight for disturbing passengers. In July, a family was booted from a JetBlue plane after their toddler kicked the back of a passenger’s seat on their way to New York.
Tamir Raanan, his wife, Mandy Ifrah, and their three children were on their way home from a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, when their 1-year-old son started to cry and kicked the back of a passenger’s seat. Another passenger used a derogatory slur and suggested to “tie the baby’s feet down.”
The pilot went back to the gate and a JetBlue flight attendant asked the family to gather their things, according to David Templer, an attorney for the family. When they were ejected from the plane, the couple continued to ask why they were being removed, but the supervisor said there was “no need to give an excuse.”
“They were basically humiliated in front of this crowded airplane, humiliated in the gate and abandoned thousands of miles from home,” Templer said.
A JetBlue spokesperson told The Washington Post in a statement there had been an altercation with threats toward another passenger.
“The aircraft door was reopened, and our airport’s team politely asked the customers to step off to discuss the situation,” the airline said in the statement. “The customers refused repeated requests, and our crew members deplaned the entire aircraft. Law enforcement escorted them out of the gate area, and we provided a refund. The customers were not removed due to the actions of their children.”
The family’s attorney claimed the airline’s version of events was “false and defamatory.”
