A 26-year-old woman appeared in court yesterday accused of trying to open the door on a Jet2 flight from Stansted to Dalaman.
A cabin crew member was allegedly scratched as she tried to stop the incident on June 22.
The plane had to be escorted back to Stansted by two RAF fighter jets.
Chloe Haines, of High Wycombe, appeared before Chelmsford magistrates charged with assault and acting in a manner likely to endanger an aircraft.
She was released on bail on the condition she does not travel from any UK airport.
She is due at Chelmsford Crown Court on December 18.
