How to make me into a nervous flyer

A 34-year-old French woman, who tried to open the emergency door of a plane so she could have a cigarette, has appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court.

Sadrine Helen Sellies was on an inbound flight from Hong Kong on Saturday morning with her husband.

A nervous flyer, she was affected by alcohol and sleeping tablets when passengers noticed her tampering with a plane door.

Today she pleaded guilty to a charge of endangering safety on an aircraft.

The court heard Sellies was prone to sleep walking and had an unlit cigarette and a lighter in her hand at the time.

The Commonwealth Prosecutor told the court the plane was flying at 39,000 feet over north Queensland when the incident happened.

Magistrate Gordon Dean placed Sellies on a 12-month good behaviour bond and told her to behave on planes.

"Told her to behave on planes" Ha! good one!
