Passenger's luggage stickered "I Am Gay"

Mon 14 Oct 2013 In: International News View at NDHA

Pic: Twitter A man’s had his luggage covered with stickers to read “I Am Gay” while it was in transit with Jetstar. The man posted a picture of the suitcase on Twitter, writing: "Utterly disgusted to find my luggage front and centre on the luggage carousel looking like this.” The man, Aaron, added: “I think it happened at Perth airport. It's the luggage sticker tags for the flight …” Jetstar has apologised to the stay-at-home-dad on Twitter, asking him to provide more information. "I'm very sorry to see that. So we can investigate this internally, please direct message us your booking reference," a spokeswoman said. When a follower suggested someone should get fired over the incident, Aaron said he’d rather have “broad consciousness raising” over job losses.
