A passenger accused of threatening to blow up a US jetliner bound for Dublin, Ireland, will remain in jail until a detention hearing on Wednesday.

Aiden Simon Mackle, 44, of Portadown, Northern Ireland, was accused of telling a Delta Air Lines employee that he was a terrorist after drinking and becoming unruly on Flight 146 from Atlanta. The flight was diverted to Bangor International Airport early on Saturday.

Mackle faces charges of assault and interfering with a flight crew.
