A girl who allegedly brought on a flight to be diverted because of “extraordinarily disruptive behaviour” has been given an £85,000 invoice by an airline.
The flight to Dalaman in Turkey was redirected again to Stansted Airport on 22 June.
A 25-year-old lady from Maidenhead in Berkshire was arrested on suspicion of widespread assault, prison harm and endangering an plane.
Airline Jet2 mentioned she has been billed £85,000 and given a lifetime ban.
The lady tried to open the plane doorways throughout the flight and displayed a “catalogue of aggressive, abusive and harmful behaviour” earlier than being restrained by employees and passengers, in line with the airline.
Steve Heapy, chief govt of Jet2, mentioned her behaviour had been “one of the critical instances” the airline had skilled.
He mentioned: “She should now resist the results of her actions, and we are going to vigorously pursue to get better the prices that we incurred because of this divert, as we do with all disruptive passengers.”
The flight was escorted in to land by RAF Storm jets with residents reporting their homes shaking because of a sonic growth.
The lady was launched on bail till 21 August.
