The distraught reaction of an Iranian woman who discovered her husband had been having an affair in the middle of a flight caused the plane's pilot to make an emergency landing, The New York Post reported.

According to The Cut, she hacked her way into her husband's phone while he was snoozing, using his finger to unlock it while he slept. She went ballistic after what she discovered on the phone.

According to the Times of India, the flight from Doha was diverted after the woman got into a heated altercation with her husband an hour after take-off.

The couple and their child later flew to Kuala Lumpur where they boarded a flight back to Doha. "The woman and her husband along with their child were offloaded and the flight departed for Bali", said an officer of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), requesting anonymity.

In Chennai, the three family members deplaned and the flight took off again, continuing to Bali.

To make things worse, the family had to be kept in a detention centre because they didn't have Indian visas. "No police action was taken", the officer said. Qatar Airways' comment was awaited at the time of filing this story and will be updated once the airline sends a statement.
