Melbourne, August 10 (ANI): Two Melbourne-bound Qantas passengers refused to fly after they were told that there were no XL-sized first-class pyjamas on their LA flight.
The crew's offer of business-class jim-jams failed to placate the duo.
Their luggage was offloaded after they elected to spoil their own pyjama party and were left behind.
QF094 business-class passenger Angela Ceberano said that the cabin erupted in laughter when the captain announced the reason for the delay.
"He said: 'Just to inform you all, the reason we've had the delay is because two of our first-class passengers refused to fly on this plane as there was no extra large pyjamas on board for them,'" the Herald Sun quoted her as telling mX newspaper.
Another passenger told her that the pyjama guy had said to the crew: "Make sure you tell everyone why were so late: They didn't have pyjamas for us.'"
"In his mind, he thought everyone sympathised with him.
"If you didn't laugh, you would have cried. It was unbelievable," she said.
It is believed that the irate passengers were offered business-class pyjamas but insisted on being clad in the real deal, pairs of which are listed on eBay, for as little as 10 dollars.
International business-class passengers are given Peter Morrissey pyjamas on "selected flights" while first class passengers get "soft and luxurious pyjamas and slippers."
Qantas spokesman Luke Enright said that the two passengers chose to get off an aircraft just before departure in LA.
"Other passengers were unaffected with the flight touching down in Melbourne this morning on schedule," he said. (ANI)
