Naughty Passengers

Man Attempts to Open Door Midflight
At Depth Travel, we have heard our fair share of unruly passenger tales. This week however, we have added a new to our list of memorable moments.

A man traveling on an Air Asia flight in India Monday had to be restrained by crew members and other passengers after he attempted to open the door of the plane midflight.

A 32-year-old man was on Air Asia Flight from Delhi to Birsa Munda Airport in Ranchi when he reportedly attempted to open one of the emergency doors.

Members of the flight crew and other passengers were forced to restrain Ahmed and eventually handed him over to the police in Ranchi after the plane landed safely.

Several passengers and attendants were injured in the scuffle.

Airlines serving India have faced similar issues in the past as well. In April, a passenger was tied to his seat while traveling between Delhi and Dubai after he became violent. Unruly passengers are not just confined to Asia, either, as a reportedly drunk passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight in June had to be tackled by crew members and secured to a seat with zip ties after he locked himself in the bathroom and refused to leave.
