Cheating husband downs plane

An irate Iranian woman caused an emergency landing of a Qatar Airways plane last week after she discovered her husband was being unfaithful.

The cheating husband was asleep on the plane, which was flying from Doha to Bali, when his wife used his fingerprint to gain access to his phone. She read his text messages and found out that he was having an affair, proceeded to “blow her top” and was so out of control the pilot had no choice but to land the plane. 

“The Qatar Airways flight QR-962 (Doha-Bali) was diverted to Chennai after the pilot requested it, citing an unruly passenger on board as the reason,” a security officer told the Hindustan Times.

“The woman and her husband, along with their child, were offloaded and the flight departed for Bali.” 

No charges were laid and the family spent the day in the Indian city of  Chennai before flying to Malaysia.
