Pity poor Sam Kerr. The $2m. p.a. Australian Matildas player was not allowed to board a Jetstar flight due to her damaged passport. After the attainment of equal pay with the men’s side (Socceroos) in the last month, it seems Kerr doesn’t understand that the airline gets fined (c.$3,500) for allowing passengers to travel with damaged documents. Was she aware of this?
While the damage to her passport might look superficial to us and as much as we might think of Jetstar as a one star airline for service, she should have taken better care of the document. Get over it.
What is it with the Qantas group and grumpy passengers in the last few weeks? Another sign of the self-entitled taking to Twitter to air grievances when they are in the wrong.
