Muhammad Razaq, a passenger from Pakistan, was found guilty of harassing a flight attendant on an Emirates trip from Dubai to Manchester in March of last year.
The 29-year-old man verbally assaulted other passengers while verbally groping and threatening the flight attendant. When Razaq arrived at Manchester Airport in 2022, he was detained right away. But, it took a year for a UK court to sentence him to an 18-month prison term.
The prosecution testified throughout the trial that Razaq spent three weeks in Pakistan and drank excessively out of sorrow since his parents disapproved of his new spouse.
He also broke a seat and bent the headrest, resulting in damage worth $248. He had gotten out of hand and the flight personnel had to cease feeding him booze.
The victim described the terrifying incident and said it took her a long time to get over it. The situation, according to her coworker, was the worst they had ever encountered in their seven years of employment with Emirates.
This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of protecting flight attendants, who are frequently the targets of abuse and harassment from other passengers.
It also emphasises the necessity of taking swift action against such offenders to stop them from putting other passengers in danger.
