DUBAI – An Indian man and woman, working as cabin crew for Emirates airlines, have received a jail sentence here for exchanging steamy text messages, a media report said Thursday.
The man, 47, and the woman, 42, worked as cabin crew for Emirates airlines and were sentenced to three months in jail, said authorities.
The text messages came up in a divorce case by the woman’s estranged husband.
The court ruled there wasn’t enough evidence to determine whether the couple had an affair – that would have likely brought a harsher sentence.
A court had sentenced them to six months in jail followed by deportation in December. However, an appeals court reduced the jail period and gave them the option to remain in the country.
