Female Passenger Rages on Qantas Flight, Claims Special Treatment for Allison Langdon – Photo Evidence Disproves Claim

A woman has accused Qantas of giving A Current Affair host Allison Langdon special treatment on a flight from Sydney to Fiji over the weekend.

Aussie mum Courtney, who was on the same flight as the Channel Nine presenter, claimed passengers in economy had asked staff for wine during the flight but were told the beverage wasn’t on offer.

She said Allison, 45, was also seated in economy and was not only offered wine, but her children – son Mack, seven, and daughter Scout, four – were allowed to use the bathrooms in first class, but other youngsters were denied access.

‘There was a famous person from 60 Minutes on the plane, I think her name is Allison. She didn’t get a first class seat, she got an economy seat,’ Courtney ranted on TikTok.

‘We flew Qantas. They were turning people down when they were asking for wine and that’s fine. I didn’t ask but I overheard a lot of people being rejected.

‘But then they were offering her wine and handing it out in front of everyone else. So the people who were being declined alcohol had to sit and watch this famous lady be served alcohol when they bought the same ticket for the same price.

‘The staff were treating her better than everyone else. It’s just not fair. Why are these famous people getting treated better in front of you when you’ve both paid the same amount of money?

‘If you’re going to give someone special treatment just because you think they’re famous, I think that’s wrong. I don’t understand what’s going on with service these days.’

But Courtney’s account of what happened on the flight was quickly debunked.

In photos obtained by Daily Mail Australia, Langdon was pictured with her husband Michael Willesee Jr. and their children at the Qantas business class check-in before flying out for the school holidays.

They were also escorted to the gate by Qantas ground staff, a service usually only provided to business or first class passengers. 

The Qantas website also clearly states all economy passengers on international flights are offered complimentary Australian wines, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Langdon for comment.

Langdon and Willesee Jr. tied the knot in 2008 after meeting for the first time at a Sydney bar.

‘We were at a bar and this guy walked in and he had his red T-shirt and dark jeans and you just have that moment where you just have like an overwhelming physical attraction to someone? I just got hit by this,’ she previously said.

Langdon recently revealed what she plans to do when she stops hosting ACA.

She joined the program at the start of 2023, replacing Tracy Grimshaw, after a three-year stint co-hosting the Today show with Karl Stefanovic.

In May, she said she hopes to stay on ACA for ‘a while’, and when she does eventually step aside, she intends to go back to university and start a new career.
