Papua New Guinea's Higher Education Minister has been ejected from a domestic flight after refusing to turn off her mobile phone and arguing with cabin crew.

The Post Courier reports Delilah Gore was escorted from an Air Niugini flight last week because she continued to talk on her phone while the plane was preparing for takeoff.

A passenger told the newspaper the MP shouted at a flight attendant who had asked her to turn it off.
