Passenger On Worst Airline In The World Attacks People, Seat And Window After Praying In The Aisles

A passenger on Pakistan International Airlines – the worst airline in the world – was deported from Dubai after September 14th’s flight PK283 from Peshawar where he attacked fellow passengers and tried to bash the aircraft’s window.

The barefoot man, who has been banned from travel on the airline, “took out his frustration on an aeroplane window, kicking it while they were in the air.” He was also seen “punching and kicking the seats” and praying.

The man was enough of a threat that Pakistan International Airlines “sent a two-member team from Islamabad to bring the passenger back” to Pakistan, since the carrier was obliged to transport him when he wasn’t admitted into the U.A.E.

  1. They need to throw this clown into a padded cell for 20 or 30 years.
    I’m sure he’ll get a “kick” out of it.

  2. My guess was that problem passenger is autistic or has some other kind of mental disorder. His behavior pattern and looks suggest just that.

    Since then, there has been some suggestion that UAE authorities were quick to want the passenger returned to Pakistan because of the passenger’s limited mental capacity.

    If this passenger doesn’t get prosecuted in either Pakistan nor Dubai, then perhaps the Pakistani authorities may look at prosecuting the removed passenger’s family/caretakers for attempted dumping of social responsibility.

  3. Sadly, it’s not unheard of for some people in South Asia to attempt to dump disabled relatives/wards in the UAE or Saudi Arabia. In the case of the latter destination, this is sometimes done under cover of religious pilgrimages.

    Compassion toward those who have serious disabilities is too often lacking. And people with serious mental disorders seem to often be viewed with even less compassion than those with obvious physical disabilities.

  4. Señor Leff,

    Remember when you disappeared that blog story on here about a passenger at a US airport reportedly making an anti-semitic rant and then after being informed the passenger was Jewish and had a mental disorder the story got pulled?

    Will this blog story go the same way? I am curious why that story was pulled from the blog.

  5. ‘Compassion toward those who have serious disabilities is too often lacking. And people with serious mental disorders seem to often be viewed with even less compassion than those with obvious physical disabilities’.

    Very deep and real comment.
    Really touched me..

  6. It seems from the vids this man is mentally unstable. Unfortunately this happened on a flight. Can be scare no doubt for the passengers.
