A British bloke was in for a shock when he boarded his flight from Los Angeles to Sydney recently.

George Rogers, a building surveyor, thought he’d booked a totally standard flight after spending a few weeks partying in Mexico, Colombia and Costa Rica.

However, he’d actually selected a seat on Qantas’ WorldPride flight which was made to bring LGBT+ people from the US to Australia for a 17-day festival.

While, he hadn’t noticed when booking, George claims it became pretty obvious after check in.

He told news.com.au : “I had absolutely no idea it was a WorldPride flight.

“It dawned on me when check-in opened and I saw a lot of ‘colourful’ people and pride flags.”

The one-off flight guided passengers to the Qantas First Lounge at LAX where drag Queen’s handed round rainbow flags and hats as well as free drinks.

Performances from Hugh Sheridan and G Flip and comedian Joel Creasey were on for the WorldPride passengers.

Plus they all got some special pride-themed PJs.

When George boarded the flight the party continued as Quantas’ own drag queen – Qantana – was joined by Felicity Frickaccino and Vybe to amuse and amaze the passengers.

Guests on the one-off journey also got to play drag bingo, take a make-up class and were given free beauty swag bags.

Dance numbers from The Village People were performed and comedy played over the loud speaker.

Thankfully for George – who says he is not LGBT+ – it was a very happy and amusing mistake to make.

He explained: “There were great vibes.

“I ended up on the gayest flight ever and I absolutely loved it.”
