From the New York Post: A plane passenger who spied on her husband’s phone and discovered he was having an affair mid-flight caused such a commotion the flight had to make an emergency landing.

An Iranian woman was with her husband on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Bali on Sunday, when she unlocked his phone by putting his finger on the home button. There, she found evidence he was cheating on her, the Times of India reported.

The woman, who had reportedly been drinking alcohol, then started a fight with her husband and “misbehaved” when flight crew tried to calm her down, according to the paper.

The situation then got “out of hand” and the pilot made the decision to divert to Chennai, India. The family of three were offloaded at Chennai airport and the plane continued its journey to Bali.
