Passenger, aged 49, perishes midflight due to unspecified condition

A Saudi Arabian woman travelling to Houston from Doha on a Qatar Airways flight unexpectedly died midflight, it has been reported.

Forty-nine-year old Fatimah Alsiari was due to arrive at George Bush Intercontinental Airport at about 4.30pm on Friday onboard flight QR077, but died a few hours into the journey, a Houston Police Department spokesperson the Houston Chronicle.

A physician onboard the aircraft attempted unsuccessfully to save Alsiari’s life. No information was provided on what caused the woman’s death, but she had been planning to visit a hospital at the Texas Medical Centre.
