You shouldn’t cheat on your significant other. However, if you have to, the least you can do is make sure there isn’t any evidence of the transgression on your phone. One Qatar Airways passenger found this out the hard way recently.
According to The Times of India, an Iranian family of three boarded a Qatar flight from Doha to Bali on Sunday. The husband decided to take a nap, which gave his wife easy access to his mobile phone. Despite the fact that she was inebriated, she was savvy enough to unlock the phone by putting his finger on its scanner. Clearly, she must have had good reason to do some snooping because once she unlocked the phone she apparently found proof that he was being unfaithful to her.
Not one to wait in stoic silence until they were off the plane, the wife got into an angry fight with her husband and “misbehaved with crew members who tried to pacify her.” Unable to calm her down or diffuse the situation, the pilot was forced to divert the plane to the eastern Indian city of Chennai. After landing, the husband, wife, and their child were escorted off the plane, which then continued its journey to Bali without them.

According to the article, security waited for the wife to sober up before the whole family was booked on a flight to Kuala Lumpur where they took a connecting flight back to Doha for what we can assume was a very unpleasant homecoming.
While the other passengers on the flight were certainly inconvenienced, it could have been a lot worse. They could have had their flight diverted just because someone didn’t want to pay for some blankets or because someone was farting way too much (which is saying something considering how much airplanes already smell like farts).
