Chloe Haines, 26, tried to open the plane’s door after scratching several crew members because she was drunk.
The High Wycombe woman in England shouted “they are all going to die”, making the flight “the worst nightmare that has come true” for many on the plane.
The airline Jet2 described her as one of the most troubled passengers in the company’s history.
Prosecutor Michael Crimps said Chloe “passed out and couldn’t remember what happened” after mixing alcohol with medication.
The 26-year-old woman admitted to putting everyone at risk and assaulting one of the employees after the flight to Turkey returned to Stansted Airport.
Judge Charles Gratwicke sentenced her to two years in prison. The woman is being accompanied on an Alcoholics Anonymous program.
“Those who were trapped on the plane were inevitably distressed, scared and petrified by the actions of those who, in a drunken state, put their lives at risk,” said the judge.
In addition to the conviction, the woman will have to pay more than 100,000 euros (85,000 pounds) to the airline and has a lifetime ban and will not be able to travel with the company again.
