The man allegedly behind the disruption of an Air Canada flight was expected to appear in court Thursday morning, but the case was put over until Oct. 4.
Justin Frank, 35, was due before the judge in Leduc provincial court Thursday but the case was put over until Oct. 4 because his lawyer was not available.
Frank, of Calgary, is facing several criminal code charges and aeronautic offenses that include 'sexual assault' and 'mischief causing a disturbance'.
Police say it's alleged that an intoxicated Frank assaulted a female crew member and another passenger. He also allegedly caused some minor damages to the aircraft.
Frank was subdued and strapped to his seat by crew and passengers prior to the flight being divered to the Edmonton International Airport.
There were 349 passengers and 11 crew on board the aircraft traveling from London, England to Calgary.
