Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has reportedly been banned from using all Qantas services for six months, after abusing staff members at Melbourne Airport in March.

Key points:

  • Ms Lambie is reported to have made a gay slur against Qantas chief Alan Joyce
  • has apologised on television for her outburst in March
  • Qantas has reportedly banned her for six-months

Fairfax media had reported Senator Lambie reacted badly to being told by airline staff she was unable to access the Chairman’s Lounge, using a homophobic slur towards chief executive Alan Joyce and then referring to “pussy power”.

Mr Joyce is openly gay.


Fairfax Media reported after negotiations with Ms Lambie, the airline suspended her for six months from early April.

Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce is openly gay.

Appearing on Nine’s Today Show this morning, Senator Lambie apologised to Qantas staff.

“They should never have wore that and it was really unfair of me to do that to them. So once again, I’m extremely apologetic for my behaviour for that few minutes.”

Both Qantas and Ms Lambie have been contacted for comment.
