Airline bans suicidal passenger for life, fines her…

A female passenger aboard a Turkey-bound flight has been fined a whopping $106,000 for attempting to open the door of an aircraft during flight, while threatening to kill everyone along with herself.

Several media outlets reported that the woman tried to open the aircraft’s door mid-flight and had shouted, “I’m going to kill everyone,” when passengers and cabin crew tried to subdue her.

According to Daily Sabah, the passenger was accused of severe misbehaviour on a Jet2 flight that had to return to London’s Stansted Airport.

The airline had accused Ms Chloe Haines of “aggressive, abusive and dangerous behaviour” on the flight. She was also banned from flying the airline for the rest of her life.

Officials say the plane, bound for Turkey, had to return to Stansted under the escort of two Royal Air Force Typhoon fighter jets.

The 25-year-old British woman was arrested by Essex Police when the plane landed and has since been free on bail, the medium has reported.

Ms. Haines was arrested on suspicion of common assault, criminal damage and endangering an aircraft, and is scheduled to be in court on August 21.

The medium quotes Jet2’s CEO, Steve Heapy, as saying on Thursday that the airline will try to recover the costs incurred as a result of the diversion.
