A mother-of-one, who recently turned aggressive over crying babies, yelled at cabin crew and allegedly slapped passengers, was banned for life by an airline.

Catherine Bush, from Bradford, West Yorkshire, was also fined 5,000 pounds ($6,608.50) by Jet2, reported Daily Mail. Bush displayed a "continued pattern of appalling behavior on the flight and she must now face up to the consequences of her actions," according to managing director of Jet2.com Phil Ward. He added that as a "family friendly airline, we take a zero-tolerance approach to such behavior and that we will vigorously pursue any costs incurred as a result of such an incident."

She grew unruly around halfway through the flight from Manchester to Antalya, Turkey on Monday, according to a video. Independent reported that the flight left Manchester shortly after 9 am on Monday, but it was forced to divert after she became violent. The plane landed in Vienna at 11.38 am.

Witnesses claimed that she slapped other passengers and squared up to staff of the airline. Bush, who apparently tried to open a door mid-flight, was traveling to get 20 zirconium veneers costing 3,000 pounds ($3,965.10), said a source. The source shared that they were with Bush in the pub at the weekend when she shared that she was "excited about going to Turkey." At the pub, Bush reportedly said that she had "scraped together £3,000 from her savings for cosmetic surgery on her teeth," and that she was going to have them "whitened."

Before launching a verbal attack on the cabin crew, Bush is believed to have walked to the front of the aircraft to confront other passengers. Fellow passenger said that Bush was really angry towards "Jet2 staff and wouldn't calm down," and that her voice "was getting louder and more aggressive - she was shouting in people's faces."

The passenger shared that people were saying that she was "kicking off at the airport before she even got on the plane," and then some people said it was "over babies crying on the flight." The passenger noted that a customer said something and Bush "slapped him in the face," reported Daily Mail.
