A Queensland man has been granted bail after allegedly causing a disturbance on a flight from Perth to Brisbane.

Qantas flight QF652 returned to Perth after about an hour in the air and it's alleged the man, 38, repeatedly failed to follow crew instructions on the overnight flight.

The man was arrested by Australian Federal Police on the plane's return and the flight was delayed by about three hours, arriving in Brisbane at 8.30am on Wednesday.

An AFP spokeswoman said the man was expected to face charges including assaulting aircrew, harming a Commonwealth officer and obstructing police.

He appeared in the Perth Magistrates' Court on Wednesday and was bailed to reappear on August 9.
