A woman from India who boarded a Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Penang threatened to “hijack” the plane during the flight.
According to sources, the 35-year-old woman boarded the plane at about 6pm yesterday with two children, aged one and three.
She went to the cockpit area and ordered one of the stewards to let her into the cockpit. She threatened to “take over the plane” when the steward stopped her.
The crew managed to pacify her and convinced her to return to her seat.
Upon arrival at the Penang International Airport at around 7pm, the steward lodged a police report and the woman was arrested.
She has been detained for questioning.
