Writing on his blog, http://onesleepydad.blogspot.com.au he continued:
‘Yesterday I tweeted a photo of my luggage after a Jetstar flight from Perth and it has caused quite the stir on social media.
‘I would like to point out that Jetstar has contacted me and offered a very sincere apology. For which I am grateful.
‘They are also conducting a “serious” investigation that I am assisting them with. Their PR machine is making all the right noises and saying all the right things. I have set no expectations of Jetstar with regards to their procedures or outcomes.’
THEGAYUK reached out to Jetstar, but no one was immediately available to comment on this story.
