Russell Crowe Virgin Australia twitter hoverboard leads to very little public sympathy.

It seems Australian actor Russell Crowe hasn’t (once again) done his public image any particular good after he had a go at Virgin Australia after the airliner reprimanded him after his kids carried hoverboards in their hand luggage whilst boarding a recent flight.

Incensed that the airliner didn’t have the good decency to remind him that such possible inflammables are non negotiable, the actor went on to have a good whinge episode. To not anybody’s amusement.

Tweeted the actor: ‘Ridiculous. No Segway boards as luggage? Too late to tell us at airport. Kids and I offloaded. Goodbye Virgin. Never again.’ 

After being told that the rule had been adopted by airlines all over Australia following research, the actor complained that he wasn’t made aware before arriving for his flight.

‘Why did you not inform me when I booked my ticket? Where is your duty of responsibility in this?

‘I’m awaiting your reply, where is your duty of responsibility in this? Why not tell me when I am booking my ticket?

Presupposing that Virgin Australia might bend over backwards the actor presumably was not too thrilled when the airline almost too nonchalantly responded to his rant by tweeting:

Russell dear, it’s about time you got off your high horses and come to terms with reality, but yeah next time we’ll remember to make an exception for a blessed immortal like yourself.

Hi Russell, this information is outlined in Dangerous Goods section in the booking confirmation and check in ….1/4

In the end the actor decided not to travel with the airline as presumably he made other arrangements in getting to his ‘holiday destination.’

And then there were these reactions on the web that made me wonder. See what you think?

It’s not all about you Russell.

I’m more likely to fly Virgin now, knowing they value safety over shouty bullies with their high fire risk toys.
