A unique reason for emergency landing
A Qatar Airways passenger plane on the Doha-Bali route had to land emergencyly in Chennai because of a scandal broke out on board. A woman took her husband sleeping on her finger and unlocked her phone. On this occasion, he discovered that the man had an extramarital affair.
The Iranian woman, traveling to Indonesia along with her husband and the minor child of the couple, consumed alcohol and became violent when the crew tried to calm her down. Qatar Airways confirmed the emergency landing but did not provide details of the incident. “From respect for passengers we do not comment on these cases,” a spokesman for the airline said.
This is not the first time a smartphone causes a scandal between two spouses, and the incident is around the world. Last year, a Saudi Arabian couple divorced from their wife shortly after they married because the woman, rather than spending gentle moments with him on the wedding night, stayed too much on the smartphone.
