The airline has accused Chloe Haines of “aggressive, abusive and dangerous behavior” on a flight and sent her a bill for 85,000 pounds ($106,000). She has also been banned from the airline for the rest of her life.

The RAF is also going to have to pay compensation in relation to the sonic boom caused by the Typhoon Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) aircraft, so she should have to pay those costs as well imho.

Essex sonic boom: MOD receives four compensation claims - BBC News

Perhaps this will serve as a warning to other idiots who engage in air rage and drink to excess.

Airline sends £85,000 bill to woman who tried to open emergency doors mid-flight - Metro

In case you haven't heard a sonic boom before, here's a CCTV camera recording of two RAF Typhoon (Eurofighter) Quick Reaction Alert Aircraft breaking the speed of sound in 2016 in order to get to an aircraft that had gone off course and had lost communication posing terrorism fears. The RAF only permits breaking the sound barrier over populated areas during peacetime where there is a serious threat.

25-year-old Chloe Haines was traveling with her wheelchair-bound grandmother.
She stormed the cockpit and attempted to open exit doors. She injured flight attendants and made threats to crew and passengers.

Passengers subdued her. Reportedly claimed she had the strength of a large man despite being very petite. Some kind of substance is suspected. She had to be dragged off the plane.

Someone ( grandma?) bailed her out.

I would love to see her version of the story posted on social media, assuming she remembers anything.

Also think it appropriate she be banned from all air travel going forward.

I think she's going to have to sue one of the male passengers that held her down for #metoo reasons to recoup that kind of money.

She was given a 28 month driving ban for drink driving just weeks before the airline incident and was arrested by Essex Police for suspicion of common assault, criminal damage and endangering an aircraft.

On top of this she has the the Civil Court actions amounting to £85,000.

So this is both a criminal and civil matter, as foir croed funding there are rules regarding criminal charges and funding, and GoFundMe can also takel down a page connected to civil suits.

I would suggest the woman is made to attend alcohol and addiction treatment, as she clearly has problems.

Whilst endangering an arcraft and causing the RAF having to scramble and cause a sonic boom over populated areas is also unacceptable and a prison sentence could yet be the end result.

She "attempted" to storm the cockpit. It was an international 777 flight.
