Kate Ceberano says she was booted out of a Qantas lounge for wearing sandals.
The Aussie singer was on her way to the Caloundra Music Festival on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast over the long-weekend when she was allegedly shown the door at the Qantas members’ area of an Australian airport.
Among clothing forbidden in the dress code of the domestic Qantas member’s lounge are gym wear, Ugg boots, bare feet and thongs.
Ceberano says she was wearing open feet sandals. A technicality?
“Disappointed to be evicted from the Qantas Lounge after being a member since 1990 for wearing ‘inappropriate footwear’? hahaha (new rules),” she posted her Facebook page.
It’s been a bad weekend for Kate. On Saturday she was the talk of an otherwise mundane AFL Grand Final when she fluffed the words to the national anthem. In the pre-match ceremony, she sang “In history’s stage, let every stage, Advance Australia Fair” instead of “In history’s page, let every stage, Advance Australia Fair.”
