Comedian Alan Davies has tweeted that a Qantas steward allegedly told him to ‘F–k off’ during a flight to London.
The British actor and comedian told his Twitter followers that during a flight from Bangkok to London yesterday his two-year-old daughter was playing in the first-class toilets.
Davies, who stars with Stephen Fry on the ABC’s panel show, QI, tweeted “sadly we weren’t flying first class, that’s why my two year old got a bollocking I suppose, for going in the 1st class loo”.
He began the Twitter feed with: “Life in #qantas town. A steward made my 2 yr old cry after turfing her out of a ’1st class’ toilet & told me to ‘f–k off’ when I complained.”
Then Davies tweeted: “I was actually holding my crying two year old girl in my arms when the #qantas steward told me to f–k off. Made for a less enjoyable journey.”
Davies, who toured QI Live Australia with Stephen Fry in October, then asked his followers if they knew the name and address of the Qantas CEO.
One joker claiming to be the very same Alan Joyce tweeted, “Our official position on the @alandavies1 situation is this: it’s a misunderstanding. We told the person next to him to f–k off.”
Davies continued on his Qantas rant saying, “I asked the #qantas steward what his name was and he wouldn’t tell me. Managed to call him a gutless coward and sat down. Got his name later.
“Then the chief #qantas steward came out and told me he didn’t believe me, argued with me over it and made my daughter cry again.”
QI host Stephen Fry last month also tweeted about Qantas after his plane was forced to land with engine trouble in Dubai.
“Bugger. Forced to land in Dubai. An engine has decided not to play,” he tweeted.
But his Qantas experience was less memorable. Later, he tweeted: “We’re just stuck on the tarmac: have been for an hour or so”, followed by “I think plan is to bus us to the transit lounge and await International Rescue. This plane, the crew tell me, is going nowhere.”
