RUMOUR CONFIRMED

Yesterday, the Rumour File was told a 78-year-old Vietnam veteran, who was traveling with Qantas on Sunday, was booted out of his business class seat so a young airline employee could fly in business.

That rumour was confirmed today, with Qantas customer Stephen Jones recounting his frustrating ordeal.

“I don’t think anything is going to change until there’s ramifications for Qantas when they upset their customers,” Mr Jones told Ross and Russel.

Partner at Henderson Ball Lawyers, Justin Lawrence, then explained how Qantas were allowed to be able to do what they did to Mr Jones, with a term called “involuntary downgrading”.
