I'm not comfortable with this. I won't fly with Jetstar, but there are always two sides to a story.
The Yak
And he says that he is an experienced traveller. I call BS

I can't hear the announcements cuz I'm deaf, but I still stash my phone on the tarmac. It's just common sense.
Brendon Murphy
I totally didn't realize you couldn't use your phone on the tarmac! Good thing mine was already stashed away in my bag! #rulefollowerlol

Hey there, world traveler! You probably already knew the drill, but I flew yesterday and they just said to put our phones on flight mode. So I guess you're in the clear!

because the plane's having a refill and it only mattered while on the tarmac.
Costa Loukakis
It's just basic common sense not to use it on the runway. Isn't it funny how he claimed his wife heard it, and still smiled for a picture? Yep, you're a total goofball.
Sometimes, the customer is just a little bit wacky!

If phones were really a big issue, they'd have to be stashed in the checked bags. Like, have you ever heard of a phone sparking a fire at an airport or gas station?

Totally! I mean, if they're supposedly so risky, why do they still have boarding passes, right? lol The regulations are all about phone calls, but there are some total dummies on this flight.
Phillip Simmons
That kid thinks he's so special. And teaching his own kids to act the same way by setting a bad example.
Dante Giuliani
They be sayin' don't be bringin' yo phones on the tarmac, no matter what airline you fly with. Use some common sense and follow the rules, ya feel me?
Allan Jones
I reckon I saw 'Mythbusters' have a crack at this, and there's no way ya can light up fuel vapor with a mobile phone...

He is not an occasional traveller and doesn't know to turn off his phone on the tarmac, regardless of refuelling. His excuse for not hearing the announcement is not believable.
He was held from the flight for storming over to her and ignoring the attendant.
Matt Crawley
Everyone knows you can't be on your phone on the tarmac. It's like, as basic as the no smoking and no vaping rules.
Martin Lawrence
I'm really sorry that happened to you. Jetstar really expects people to hear announcements over the PA system. Like, what about people who are deaf or hard of hearing? Ridiculous, right?

if someone with a disability was involved, things would be totally different. But in this case, this dumbass should've just apologized instead of getting all defensive.

Brendan Smith
He claims to be a seasoned traveller, so he should know the rules.
William Lopez
He reckons he was wearing noise cancelling headphones, but his missus still heard the announcement and didn't bother telling him to put the camera away. She even posed on the stairs for the photo.
Andrew Mackie
We recently flew on Jetstar, where they reminded passengers multiple times not to use phones on the tarmac. Overall, we had two pleasant flights.

I caught him getting interviewed on the Today show this morning. Seems like he didn't get booted for using his phone. He got booted for not doing what he was told, and it all went downhill from there. I had a similar experience a few years back at Customs when an officer told me to switch off my pho... View More
Experienced traveler unaware of phone usage rules on tarmac despite frequent announcements.
Brent Chapman
Is this your first time flying or what? It's basic stuff, so don't act all salty with the crew, you brought it on yourself.
Rick Horton
This ain't even a story. It'd be a story if he didn't get chucked off the plane.
Christos Georgallis
Sprinkled with a bit of salty goodness, maybe?
Patrick Rogers
Sounds like it was deserved.
Iain Wells
Listen, he shouldn't have been on his phone, but that doesn't mean she can talk to a customer like that! They don't deserve to be disrespected, but it's messed up how it's always one-sided. Ever since Covid, customer service has really gone downhill.

Calling out the staff got him busted. He was in the wrong from the get-go. If he had just owned up and bounced, this whole mess could have been avoided. And then he had the nerve to whine to news.com.au. Looks like the staff was in the right.
Alex Jones
Mate, it's common practice to have no phone on the tarmac, just like no phone when filling up the car. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I love how he was totally clueless to the announcement thanks to his noise-cancelling headphones, but somehow still heard the flight attendant calling him a goofball.
David Smith
Crikey mate! If that's the worst thing that's ever happened to you, you're batting above average!
Andrew Broadfoot
I'm shocked that Jetstar can remove passengers from their flights, their customer service is already below par. I prefer not to fly and would choose Jetstar as my last option.
Jason Mays
"He had a full blown confrontation. I reckon the photo wasn't the actual reason he got kicked off, but then they let him back on. And he couldn't hear the announcement but heard them call him a drongo? Make up your mind mate"

I reckon this bloke must be a real drongo, always zipping around from Avalon Airport. It's just a quick stroll across the tarmac and up the stairs, but they're always banging on about not using your phone out there before boarding. What a wanker.
Leigh Clarke
Technically he wasn't flying at the time, so maybe it was his worst experience he's ever had hoofing it? I won't be copping any flak for my comment as my noise cancelling headphones are switched on.
