A passenger was removed from Air New Zealand flight 711 to Australia around 8:45pm after making threatening comments.

A 19-year-old man has been charged following an incident at Auckland Airport last night.

Judge Johns said Fifita's actions came at a huge cost to the taxpayer, emergency services and Auckland Airport.

He was arrested after the plane returned to the gate, and was later charged with breaching the Civil Aviation Act for providing false information relating to the safety of an aircraft.

His lawyer, Jane Northwood, reportedly said that she's "never met anyone more distressed or remorseful and overwhelmed".
