A model has reportedly blasted airline, Jetstar, as she says they allowed her to be “bullied” by fellow passengers when she boarded the plane 30 minutes late after eating oysters.
Ruby Tuesday Matthews was expected to fly from Byron Bay to Sydney on Thursday at 5 pm when she delayed the flight by 30 minutes. According to reports, she had kept everyone waiting as she wanted to finish eating her oysters.
The flight had already been delayed previously as the flight had experienced a technical delay. Therefore, all passengers were told that the flight would instead take off at 7.30 pm instead.
While passengers waited in the terminal, an engineer headed out to the plane to resolve the issue. However, Ruby and her travel buddy instead went out to eat food at a beachside restaurant, according to the Daily Mail.
The report says that the other travellers remained on the tarmac for half an hour until the model and her friend returned.
Yet Ruby has slammed the airline. She believes she was allowed to be “bullied” by other passengers on the flight upon her return.
Apparently, she was heckled by passengers when she turned up late.
Jetstar informed Daily Mail that they had “kept customers informed” amid the delay and had requested they not leave the airport “should the flight be able to get away ahead of the revised time.”
Ruby insists that she wasn’t the only passenger to disobey this rule and that there were others who left the airport too. She says that they too arrived at the rescheduled departure time.
She said: “This is so minor this s***. I actually think it’s a joke and it’s annoying that it has to waste so much of my time.
“Jetstar made a complete joke of themselves. They let that harassment happen.”
Ruby then went on to add that she was worried about her two children. Allegedly, passengers began to make comments about her parenting skills.
Although she said she could “handle the heat”, she said that it irritated her how it was mean on her kids.
