A Qatar Airways plane was forced to make an emergency landing after a passenger found out her husband was cheating on her, leading to a violent reaction in midair.
According to the Times of India, the female passenger was "inebriated" and "already a few drinks down" when she reached over to use her lover's phone.
"The woman and her husband, along with their child, were offloaded and the flight departed for Bali", an official at the Central Industry Security Force told the Times of India.
The unnamed lady had allegedly been suspecting her husband was seeing another "beb", but she did not have proof.
The couple, along with their child, were taken off of the flight once it landed.
Subsequently, the pilot of the worldwide airline sought permission to make an unscheduled stopover at Chennai and later offloaded the couple along with their child before resuming the journey to Bali in Indonesia, the officials said. The flight crew tried to calm her, but the pilot ended up diverting the Qatar Airways flight to the North Indian city.
The family was kept at the airport until the woman sobered up, and returned to Doha without further incident. "Fortunately for the family, no action was taken against them", says official.
