Jet2 passenger removed from flight after hitting another traveler

A nightmare flier who was filmed screaming in the face of a horrified flight attendant and slapping another passenger is a mum-of-one who was traveling to Turkey for dental treatment.

Catherine Bush was kicked off the flight from Manchester Airport to Antalya, Turkey, after “displaying a catalog of aggressive, abusive and dangerous behavior”.

The horrific behavior included “physical aggression toward other customers and our crew,” carrier Jet2 said.

The airline issued a lifetime ban on the abusive flyer and also fined him £5,000.

Now a friend of Bush’s has claimed she is on her way to a teeth whitening treatment for £3,000.

“She said she got £3,000 back from her savings for cosmetic teeth surgery.

“She was going to bleach them.”

Footage of the angry woman, believed to be from Kirklees in West Yorkshire, went viral when the horrific incident was caught on camera by shocked passengers on Monday morning.

Bush was recorded screaming and getting on and off a flight that had to be diverted to Vienna just over two hours after leaving the UK.

In the video, the woman is seen screaming in the face of a uniformed staff member at the front of the plane.

A passenger on board told the Mirror how her young daughter was ‘traumatized’ by the woman’s ‘misbehaviour’ and fights

As other flight attendants gather around her to help their colleague, it looks like she is lashing out with her hands at someone sitting in the front row.

A member of staff can be seen telling her to “back off”, to which she replies, “I’m back. Sort it out in your head.”

The airline employee says, “You’re not doing yourself any favors.”

She replies, “You’re not doing yourself a favor either.

“So what did I do?” Don’t touch me, don’t touch me.

She adds, “What did I do? What did I do wrong on that flight, huh? See, you don’t have an answer.”

The plane had to be hijacked after it became ‘disruptive’ and allegedly slapped other passengers

Another passenger, who only asked to be named by her first name, Emma, ​​told The Mirror it was around 40 minutes into the flight when the disruption started.

She said: “The flight attendant was trying to calm her down.

“She was very loud and argued with the passenger in front of her. It lasted about 40 minutes.

“They warned him that further issues and further action would be taken and told him ‘we are not here to be horrible to anyone’.

“She had none of that. She was aggressive and swore it wasn’t a great experience.

“You didn’t dare look at her.

People told the woman there were children on board as she ‘screamed and swore’, but she ‘hit back’ and swore more

“At one point I walked down the aisle to the bathroom with my little girl and she was like, ‘What are you looking at? Come on, look at you all.”

Phil Ward, managing director of, said: “Ms. Bush displayed a continuing pattern of appalling behavior during the flight and she must now face the consequences of her actions.

“We have always made it very clear that as a family-friendly airline, we take a zero-tolerance approach to such behavior and will vigorously pursue all costs incurred as a result of such an incident.

“While such incidents are very rare, it is unacceptable that our customers and crew have to experience them.

“We would like to apologize to everyone who had to experience this behavior and would like to commend our highly skilled crew for their exceptional handling of this difficult situation.”
