Flyers shocked as unruly passenger tries to smash plane's window MID-FLIGHT after argument with crew
Worried crew members on the plane attempted to stop the man from having more violent fits and were heard screaming, 'Dont do this!'
An unruly passenger on a flight from Pakistan to Dubai terrified passengers by attacking the plane windows violently after projecting a series of erratic behavior while the flight was still in the air. The shocking moment was caught on video by fearsome fellow passengers who witnessed the incident.
The unruly passenger had started hitting and kicking the chairs following an altercation with the airline crew members who were trying to get him back to his seat. The man was later detained for his misdemeanor after Pakistan International Airlines flight PK-283 arrived in Dubai from Peshawar.

Worried crew members on the plane attempted to stop the man from having more violent fits and were heard screaming, "Dont do this!" as he proceeded to damage a window shutter in rage. After the take-off, the man began to behave abnormally and requested to be returned to Pakistan, according to sources cited by Dawn. However, the plane had already taken off, and the passenger's anxiety increased as they were mid-air, the Daily Mail reported.
While he was meant to be seated, the passenger began to pray in the middle of the aisle, drawing unusual stares from the other travelers. In one video, the flight attendants moved the man from the aisle back to his seat. Both videos showed the man without shoes. Later during the flight, he removed his Taqiyah (skullcap) and the vest from underneath his shirt. When he started acting irrationally, the flight's captain contacted the Dubai air traffic controller to arrange for security to meet them when they landed.
Passengers present on the flight agreed that the man's behavior had been disorderly and erratic the whole time even before the flight took off, although the series of actions that he proceeded to do later were not expected.
On September 14, 2022, the unruly passenger was detained by the security team upon his arrival in Dubai. He was detained by authorities in Dubai on account of his disorderly conduct and attempting to disrupt the safety of passengers during a flight. Following communication between the crew and PIA management, a two-person team was allegedly dispatched from Islamabad to fetch the passenger back. Due to his unmannerly actions, the man has been banned from using the airline company's services any further.
