Saudi passenger: ‘Women travelling without man should disembark plane’
Flight delayed as man asks hostess ‘Why are you on the plane without a mahram [companion]?’
Manama: A man was questioned by the Saudi police after he delayed the departure of a plane for two hours by insisting that all women travelling without male companions should disembark.
Preparations for Flight 1108 between the western coastal city of Jeddah and the eastern city of Dammam were proceeding normally on the plane when a passenger stunned the air hostess explaining the safety instructions by telling her that she should not be without a male companion.
“Why are you on the plane without a mahram [companion]?”, the passenger asked in a loud voice, local Arabic daily Okaz reported.
The passenger, who was not identified, insisted that the plane should not take off until all the unaccompanied women passengers disembarked.
Efforts by the plane crew to calm the passenger failed and the captain called the airport security to offload the passenger and his son who was accompanying him.
