Though, the air hostesses tried to calm her down, she continued to fight and misbehaved with the crew as well.
As the situation started to drift out of control, the pilot decided to divert the plane to Chennai, where the Iranian couple and their child was offloaded. The plane left them behind and resumed the 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.
An official from India’s Central Industrial Security Force confirmed the news.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Qatar Airways refused to comment on the incident.
“In respect of passenger privacy we do not comment on individual cases,” the airline was quoted as saying by Times of India.
