An aggressive passenger who departed from a Qantas flight from Australia to London faces a considerable bill after the plane was forced to return to Perth.
The 17-hour nonstop flight to the United Kingdom was forced to change after the 32-year-old man locked himself in the plane's bathroom.
The man could be responsible for a bill of compensation that reaches tens of thousands of dollars if Qantas decides to pressure him to cover his costs.

The man locked himself in the bathroom for hours screaming and cursing aggressively.

A spokeswoman for the police confirmed that no charges have been filed.
Other passengers said that the man was screaming and cursing before being tamed by passengers and crew members and taken to the back of the plane.
Clare Hudson described the incident on board after the man finally left after an hour in the bathroom.
She told Perth Now: "When he left, he started acting really aggressive and it looked like he was going to attack another passenger.
