A woman charged with assault on a police officer at Mount Isa Airport has had her case adjourned until July 3 at 8.30am.
The bail was enlarged and the case was adjourned for three weeks from June 12.
The 52-year-old NSW woman was charged with serious assault of a police officer after allegedly spitting and biting on a plane from Brisbane to Mount Isa.
Qantas flight attendees had an off-duty police officer assist them with the difficult passenger.
The officer experienced injuries to a finger.
Senior Sergeant Hanrahan said that there was an ‘extra element’ against the woman’s behaviour, in a confined space.
The woman is alleged to have failed civil aviation regulations.
She was first scheduled to appear before the Mount Isa Magistrates Court on Monday, June 12.
A Qantas spokesperson confirmed a passenger had been disruptive to other passengers and crew members, and contacted police to meet the aircraft on arrival.
