A Queensland man has been granted bail after allegedly causing a disturbance on a flight from Perth to Brisbane.
Qantas flight QF652 returned to Perth after about an hour in the air and it's alleged the man, 38, became very abusive and repeatedly failed to follow crew instructions on the overnight flight.
The aircraft was just entering the Great Australian Bite when it turned around and headed back to Perth.
The man was arrested by Australian Federal Police on the plane's return and the flight was delayed by about three hours, arriving in Brisbane yesterday morning.
An AFP spokeswoman said the man was expected to face charges including assaulting aircrew, harming a Commonwealth officer and obstructing police.
He appeared in the Perth Magistrates' Court yesterday and was bailed to reappear on August 9.

The aircraft, an Airbus A330-202 with Rego VH-EBK departed from Perth's runway 21 at 11.05pm Perth time and returned just over two hours later landing on runway 24 at 1.37am.
QF 652 then departed again on runway 21 at 4.35am Perth time arriving into Brisbane at 8.24am Brisbane time landing on runway 19.
