Thai Airways flight reports ‘unruly passenger’ but no complaint filed

Passengers of a Bangkok-Delhi Thai Airways flight spent almost an hour inside the plane after it arrived at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport late Tuesday evening.

The reason, as announced by the captain of the flight, was an unruly passenger on board. Airport officials said the pilot had asked for security assistance upon landing at the Delhi airport. They were told that an Indian passenger, a Delhi resident, had allegedly sexually harassed a crew member on board.

The captain of the flight announced that the aircraft doors would be opened only after the security officials arrived and took the passenger out.

It took officials of the CISF about 30 minutes to reach the aircraft, which they said was parked at a distance. For the flight that landed at 11.30 pm, its passengers were allowed to get out of the aircraft at least 20 minutes past midnight.

The crew member and the captain of the flight, however, refused to register a formal complaint upon getting out. Security officials said "they had reached a compromise".
