A passenger who allegedly attacked cabin crew on a Glasgow to Tenerife flight has been told he might not be able to fly home.

Jay Dalziel, 19, was said to have become 'immediately disruptive' after he boarded the Jet2 flight from Glasgow on Wednesday, 12 June.The flight departed at 3.30pm on Wednesday and was forced to divert to Shannon Airport in Ireland at around 5.30pm, where Dalziel was arrested by Gardai.

Dalziel, from Motherwell, was accused of acting in what the airline said was an "appalling and deplorable" fashion, the Mirror reports.

He appeared in court charged with two alleged 'serious assaults' on fellow passengers, where a judge told him he might be forced to take a ferry home, as airlines "may not be too keen to allow him to board a flight."Jet2 said on Thursday it had immediately banned Dalziel for life from flying with them, and would be "vigorously" pursuing Dalziel "for the recovery of all costs incurred by this diversion, which will be a five-figure sum".The teen is also facing two breach of the peace charges against Section 20 of the Air Navigation Act, where he is accused of engaging in threatening, abusive or insulting n behaviour.
