Easyjet will push for prosecution:
"Whilst such incidents are rare, we take them very seriously, do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour on board and always push for prosecution."

The offence sounds like it will be prosecution for common assault (I'm guessing) in which case max 6 months prison but could easily be as low as a fine or community order. Depends how seriously it is viewed.

You have the UK flag next to your username and you ask a question like that? You know how things roll in the UK, worst they'll get is a fine and a 2 month community order.
