As the indignities of modern air travel go, the latest ban on laptops and tablets on some international flights falls somewhere between having to take off your ratty shoes at the security checkpoint and having your baby food and milk tested for bomb residue. It's yet another inconvenience in the name of security for weary travelers, especially those from or passing through the 10 mostly Middle Eastern and North African countries covered by new U.S. and British policies.

(KRON) — A woman who learned of her husband’s affair after unlocking his phone mid-flight caused the plane to make an unscheduled landing.

A Doha to Bali Qatar Airways flight was forced to land at Chennai airport when a woman became unruly after discovering her husband was having an affair, according to the Hindustan Times.

The woman managed to unlock the phone using her sleeping husband’s fingerprint.

The flight crew tried to calm her down but were unsuccessful.

The couple, along with their child, were taken off of the flight once it landed.

The flight departed and continued its journey to Bali while the family spent the day at Chennai airport.

No police action was taken.
