Sohail – who was marched off the Monarch flight to Manchester at gunpoint – said: “My first reaction was to laugh when I was told why we had been taken off the plane. Then I realised they were deadly serious.”
Despite their ordeal, the pair do not blame the paranoid passengers. Forgiving Sohail said yesterday: “These are nervous times and I can understand why people are so panicked.
“All I would say is, ‘Don’t be paranoid. Don’t judge every book by its cover’. We might be Asian, but we’re two ordinary lads who wanted a bit of fun.”
I’m glad that they’re behaving with more maturity than the other passengers.
