Plane thuggery: Gold Coast man charged over cabin crew assault

Plane thuggery: Gold Coast man charged over cabin crew assault

A Gold Coast man has been charged after allegedly assaulting a female flight attendant on a Qantas plane in WA'S Pilbara.

The 46-year-old is accused of grabbing the woman by the hand and pushing her into the galley's wall on Tuesday afternoon, as the crew evicted another passenger off the aircraft at Port Hedland.

The flight attendant suffered bruising in the ordeal, which delayed the Brisbane-bound flight by three hours.

The Broadbeach man faces a maximum 14-year jail term if convicted of "assaults on members of crew of aircraft".
