The man arrested by armed police at Manchester Airport "seemed no different to others on the plane", a fellow passenger has said.
Matthew Qox told the BBC: "Armed police came on and found a guy, searched him and made him stand up with his hands on his head and took him off the plane. He seemed no different to others on the plane, nothing unusual."
He also complained that he had only found out what was going on with the plane by searching on Twitter once the plane had landed at the airport.
Apparently I'm in the plane that got escorted by a fighter jet; flight QR23 from Doha Would have been nice to have been told! @mennewsdesk
"I wish we could have been kept in the loop. At least it's all a hoax, it could have been a lot worse," Mr Qox said.
