A Saudi Arabia Airlines flight from Cairo to Riyadh was delayed by more than two hours on Thursday following an altercation between a passenger and the crew, reported Al Arabiya news. The reason for the argument was poor air conditioning in the aeroplane.
The captain of the flight ordered the unruly passenger off the plane for getting enraged and starting a fist fight with the crew. Official sources said that the pilot of Saudia flight 338 called security and ordered them to get the passenger off the plane in order to continue with the journey. The flight with its remaining 360 passengers left for Riyadh after a 140-minutes delay.
