A yet to be identified Nigerian lady was reportedly withdrawn from a Turkish Airline by the Police after a disagreement ensued between her an air hostess who was on duty.
BlackBox Nigeria gathered that the incident occurred moments before the flight took off from Istanbul to Abuja, Nigeria.
It was reported that the lady requested for water from the air hostess, a request which was not well received soon saw her being taken off the flight.
According to the witness, the hostess was forced to bring the water after the lady complained severally, but not without dropping some words for the tasty traveler. The hostess was learnt to have told the Nigerian lady she only got the water because she earlier did a ‘favour’ to another traveler who requested for same. Her reason was said to be because they usually don’t give water before the commencement of the flight, only after.
It was learnt that the lady after being withdrawn by the Police which were called by the Chief Pilot, never joined other travelers back to Nigeria. An eyewitness who was on board the flight has since shared a footage of the drama.
The eyewitness narrated: “This happened on Turkish Airline from Istanbul to Abuja on Tuesday, May 30th, 2017. We all got into the flight, everyone was trying to get a sit and get their luggage arranged when this particular woman was asking the air hostess to give her water to drink.
“After a while, the Nigerian lady yelled at the air hostess, I HAVE BEEN ASKING YOU TO GIVE ME WATER, ALMOST 5 TIMES AND YOU REFUSED. The hostess brought out water with a cup and said to the lady, I’M ONLY DOING YOU A FAVOUR, I GAVE YOUR FRIEND WATER EARLIER OUT OF FAVOUR AS WELL, IT’S NOT TIME TO GIVE OUT WATER, WE GIVE OUT WATER AFTER THE FLIGHT TAKES OFF NOT BEFORE TAKE OFF.
“Just when she was about to give the woman a cup to pour the water, the woman smashed the cup angrily out of the hostess’s hand. The hostess got mad and went straight to call the Head Pilot.
“In a nutshell, they had to invite the Turkish Police to come take out the Naija lady. Please it’s been 24hrs, we need to know what they did to her and if she’s back in the country.”
Reacting to the story, revealed that the drama is not new to air hostesses of the airline as she had several experience while traveling with the airline.
