The 26-year-old Chloe Haines of High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire was drunk at that time when she was restrained by cabin crew and passengers for trying to open the plane's exit door.

Haines allegedly scratched cabin crew member Charley Coombie, Chelmsford Magistrates' Court Northeast of London heard.

Two Typhoon fighters were sent off to intercept the Airbus 321 bound for Dalaman in Turkey to guide them back to Stansted, where Haines was arrested.

She was charged later of beating and negligent act in a manner likely to endanger aircraft or the passengers.

Haines appeared behind the reinforced glass of the dock in courtroom twice, but did not enter a plea. 

She spoke only to confirm her name, age and address in the brief hearing.

The prosecutor, told the court the matter was too serious to be heard and must go to crown court.

The lawyer said Haines threatened cabin crew shortly after take-off.

The Typhoon fighter aircraft caused sonic booms as they flew to meet the plane and escorted it back to Stansted.

District Judge Timothy King granted Haines bail on the condition she must not enter any UK airport and sent the case to crown court where she will enter a plea.

Jet2 said in a statement following the incident that Haines had been given both a £85,000 bill and a lifetime ban from the airline.
