Jacqui Lambie is rumored to have been kicked out of the Qantas Club
There is a rumor surrounding this Senator from Tasmania Jacqui Lambie was suspended from Qantas Club, The Sydney Morning Heraldof CBD column reports.
Lambie did not respond to any requests for comment, but sources told the newspaper that “Qantas held back Lambie’s privileges after several occasions in the salons where staff and former army corporal did not go. Okay.
Who knows what that might mean.

We can, however, make an educated guess that it has nothing to do with loyalty points or status credits or whatever.
The Qantas Club has strict rules and even a dress code which prohibits ugg boots, among others.
It’s also a long-standing convention that all federal politicians have access to Qantas airport lounges while Parliament is in session, regardless of their mileage with the airline. Virgin Australia and Rex offer similar benefits to pollies.
Oh my. Jacqui Lambie is sitting next to me in the Qantas Lounge.

Some insiders would do better to disclose what’s really going on ASAP, as tea surely is divine.
However, all is not lost for Lambie. During the budget week, representatives of Rex were spotted visiting his office in Parliament, and the airline is now flying between his home in Burnie, Tasmania, and Canberra.
I couldn’t think of any better way to start a relaxed weekend than to stumble upon Lambie in an airport lounge.
But with this news, combined with the fact that I don’t fly often enough to get access to the lounge, I’m going to have to just run into her in line for security instead.
