Another Qantas near miss…Stewardess says ‘no’ to Ralph Fiennes

First, a faulty computer unit caused a Qantas jetliner to nosedive sharply twice during a flight to Perth. Then seven people were injured when the driver of a Qantas bus was forced to swerve to avoid hitting an airport operations vehicle.

Now, it has come to light that Ralph Fiennes was on a flight from Singapore to Brisbane when he propositioned a stewardess on the way to the toilet.

Qantas Stewardess Nicole Woodrow had friends on the Airbus A330-300 which experienced the nosedives. She stated that her experience was “almost as scary.”

“There was about 90 seconds of arms, legs and hair going all over the cabin before the Captain managed to get him under control”

“I’ve never been that frightened before in my life”

The prospect of anymore terrifying midair plunges was too much for Ms Woodrow, who lives in Brisbane. Having politely yet firmly refused Fiennes request she was surprised when he followed her into the toilet.

“We treat our business class passengers very well” she said “but I don’t what he was expecting”. Luckily with the help of the captain and another quick-thinking passenger things were returned to normal in only a few minutes.

Nicole Woodrow is looking forward to being back at work after a week of rest.
