She soon discovered that her suspicions were correct and reportedly then launched at her sleeping husband.

The woman was so furious that flight attendants were unable to calm her down, and the pilot made the decision to divert to Chennai, India, reports the New York Post.

According to the Times of India, an official from India's Central Industrial Security Force said: "On 5 November, at about 10am, Qatar Airways flight QR-962 (Doha-Bali) was diverted to Chennai.

"A lady along with her husband and a child, all Iranian nationals, were offloaded by Qatar Airline as the lady passenger (who was intoxicated) misbehaved with crew members inflight.

"They were sent to Kuala Lumpur by Batik Air flight 6019 for further travel to Doha."

According to the Independent, no charges were brought against the lady.

A Qatar Airways spokesperson said that the airline does not comment on individual cases to respect passenger privacy.
