A Saudia flight was forced to return to gate at Jeddah airport after a woman realised that she had left her baby behind.
Dubai-based Gulf News reported on Monday that the flight to Malaysia had to turn around over the weekend when the Saudi passenger realised she had left her baby at the airport’s terminal.
Flight SV832, from Jeddah to Kuala Lampur, turned back after the Saudi mother told cabin crew that she had forgotten her baby in the boarding area at the terminal of the King Abdul Aziz International Airport.

“The flight is requesting to come back… a passenger forgot her baby in the terminal – the poor thing,” a traffic controller can be heard saying.
“Ok, head back to the gate. This is a totally new one for us!”
