The passenger attacked the flight attendants and also splashed water on passengers. The in-flight drama was in full swing for a full half hour until a group of Pakistani pilgrims returning after Hajj pilgrimage overpowered the passenger.
According to one of the passengers, the man started his antics while the flight was over Greek airspace. “He attacked the cabin crew after they tried to calm him down and forced them to sit down,” said the unnamed passenger. After splashing water on other travellers, he then forced them to pray loudly after him. Sabq news reported that the British police arrested the man once the flight landed at Heathrow airport in London.
