Qantas & Virgin: Give current and former ADF personnel priority boarding

This petition had 782 supporters


As a Senator for Queensland, I am calling on major Australian airlines to allow priority boarding for current and former members of the Australian Defence Force.

I have written to the following and am now urging all Australians to join me in calling on these Chief Executives to make this happen: 

  • QANTAS : Alan Joyce;
  • Virgin Australia Airlines: John Borghetti;
  • Jetstar Airways: David Hall;
  • Tigerair Airways: Lee Lik Hsin; and
  • Regional Express Airlines: Neville Howell.

Thanks to the service and sacrifice of these brave men and women, most of us will never know what it is like to have to fight for our Country. The least we can do in return is show them the respect they deserve when they're back on home soil.

Please join me in signing this petition.

James McGrath
Senator for Queensland
