He has been fined £434 by the airline after the incident on the flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam.
He has been banned from flying KLM for five years.
James says the airline staff has accused him of trying to open the door of the plane, but he insists he only touched the handle after confusing it for the door to the toilet.
Mr Gray was escorted from the flight the moment it touched down in Amsterdam.
He was taken away to a nearby detention centre where he had spent the night before being fined the £434.
For his return flight, the airline refused him from boarding the flight and relied on a friend to pay for his return flight with rival airline, Easyjet.
