A passenger on board a Jet2 flight to Turkey caused two RAF jets to be scrambled to escort the plane back to Stansted airport following a ‘catalogue of aggressive, abusive and dangerous behaviour’.

Maidenhead girl Chloe Haines, 25, went absolutely nuts, saying she was going to kill everyone and trying to force open the aircraft doors during the flight.
A former bouncer who tackled her to the ground told the Metro she kicked, punched and screamed at the stewards:
She was only petite but she had the strength of a fully-grown man. The only time I’ve seen anything like that was when someone had just dropped acid, she had super strength.
Another passenger, who was sat behind Chloe, added:
A man sat on her and one person was holding her leg and someone else holding the other one. ‘That’s when she started screaming “get off me, I’m going to kill everyone”.
Two Typhoon fighter jets actually caused a sonic boom as they flew out to meet the plane in mid-air and escort it to safety.
Back at Stanstead, Chloe was arrested by Essex Police on suspicion of assault, criminal damage and endangering an aircraft. Jet2 have also hit her with an £85,000 bill (ouch) and a lifetime ban from the airline.
Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, says:
Miss Haines’ behaviour was one of the most serious cases of disruptive passenger behaviour that we have experienced.
She must now face up to the consequences of her actions, and we will vigorously pursue to recover the costs that we incurred as a result of this divert, as we do with all disruptive passengers.
As a family friendly airline, we take an absolutely zero tolerance approach to disruptive behaviour, and we hope that this sobering incident, with its very serious consequences, provides a stark warning to others who think that they can behave in this fashion.
Gonna have to agree with the bouncer that pinned Chloe down and say that she was probably tripping balls on acid during this Jet2 flight. The last place you want to be tripping on LSD is while crammed like a sardine inside a budget airline on the way to Turkey, especially if she had the middle seat. Chloe Haines freaked out so hard that they had to send in the RAF and take the flight all the way back to Stansted FFS. What a disaster!
£85,000 though – that’s one expensive acid trip. Maybe just pop a xanax next time.
