A budget airline has banned one British woman for life for what they deemed “unacceptable behavior” that forced a plane to make an unscheduled landing.

The 42-year-old woman was fined $10,000 by Jet2 airline after being “abusive” to the crew and generally disruptive to the flight in a way that could have threatened the safety of other passengers.
