The male passenger kicking the window in the Pakistan International Airlines

A video of a Pakistani passenger who went berserk and started kicking the window of a Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) plane flying from Peshawar to Dubai has surfaced on social media.

According to Dawn News, the male passenger boarded PIA’s flight PK-283 from Peshawar to Dubai on Wednesday. As the flight took off, he wanted the cabin crew to get him off the aircraft. The man then started punching the seats and kicking the window, damaging a shutter, which triggered a huge scare among the passengers and crew.

The flight attendants attempted to calm him down and pleaded with him to stop. The man then began praying and giving Azaan in the aisle before lying down on the floor, crew members said, according to the Dawn News report.

ARY News said that the passenger was eventually tied to his seat in accordance with aviation law.

The eccentric traveller was detained by security personnel as soon as the plane landed at the Dubai airport. The incident took place on September 14.
