The aggressive Yorkshire woman who has been banned from flying on Jet2 after screaming in cabin crew’s faces was on her way to get £3,000 veneers.

Shocking footage shows Catherine Bush pacing up and down the flight from Manchester to Antalya in Turkey on Monday.

The mother-of-one from Cleckheaton, had been saving to get 20 zirconium veneers, a friend told MailOnline and added she was “excited” about the trip.

However, she didn’t make it to Turkey after she turned violent on a flight over crying babies and she also tried to open a door mid-flight.

Witnesses also claim she also reportedly slapped other passengers onboard the flight during her aggressive outbursts.

Due to Catherine’s foul-mouthed rants, the flight diverted to Vienna so she could be kicked off the flight.

The friend told MailOnline: “I was with Catherine in the pub at the weekend. She told me she was excited about going to Turkey.

“She said that she had scraped together £3,000 from her savings for cosmetic surgery on her teeth. She was going to have them whitened.”

One passenger onboard the flight but did not wish to be named, claimed a woman became disruptive ‘around an hour and 20 minutes’ into the journey.

“Then she came to the front of the plane,” they continued. “She was really angry towards Jet2 staff and would not calm down.” The passenger added that the woman was “shouting in people’s faces” as she became “louder and more aggressive.”

According to the passenger, people had reported the same woman “kicking off” before she even got on the plane, with others claiming she had become irate over “babies crying on the flight.”

“A customer said something and she slapped him in the face,” the holidaymaker told the MEN. “Then a man got up to try and calm the situation before taking her to the back of the plane.”

Catherine’s “extremely disruptive behaviour” has led to her being banned from Jet2 flights for life as well as being slapped with a huge £5,000 fine.

Announcing the news yesterday (Thurs) Phil Ward, managing director of Jet2.com, said: “Ms Bush displayed a continued pattern of appalling behaviour on the flight and she must now face up to the consequences of her actions. We have always made it abundantly clear that, as a family friendly airline, we take a zero-tolerance approach to such behaviour and that we will vigorously pursue any costs incurred as a result of such an incident.

“Although such incidents are very rare, it is unacceptable that our customers and crew should have to experience it. We would like to apologise to anyone who had to experience this behaviour and we would like to commend our highly-trained crew for their exceptional handling of this difficult situation.”

The airline added it will fully support the authorities with any subsequent investigation.
