Gulf Air does u-turn to offload unruly passenger
A Gulf Air flight from Bangkok to Bahrain was forced to make a u-turn to off load an unruly passenger, it has been reported.
Gulf Daily News reports on Tuesday the flight GF151 was diverted back to Bangkok after an out of control passenger shouted that everyone was going to die and “we should all pray to Allah”.
A spokeswoman for the airline told the paper the pilot decided to offload the passenger because of his rowdy behaviour. The man was handed over to Thai police after the incident on Saturday, she said.
"Our passengers' security and safety is our number one priority. In situations where an individual causes concern to fellow passengers, it is standard procedure to off-load them," the spokeswoman told the paper.
