  • Australian carrier Qantas will decide by year's end whether to order new planes for what would be the world's longest commercial route

The plane on the London-Sydney research flight, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, carried 50 passengers and had fuel remaining for roughly another 1hr 45min of flight time when it landed.

Will.i.am included the hashtag RacistFlightattendant in his tweets and insisted that he was "targeted" by the employee.

Reportedly, the ordeal started after will.i.am made a decision to use his noise-canceling earphones to make beats on his laptop.

"Thank god the other passengers testified that SHE was out of Control". "Your # stewardess was more than rude and took everything to another level when she called the police".

A month after becoming the first commercial airline to pilot a non-stop flight from NY to Sydney, Qantas has flown direct from London to Sydney in a trial run.

The hip hop icon followed up with another tweet after arriving in Sydney: "This is how your greeted when you land from Brisbane to Sydney flying @qantas with a #RacistFlightattendant".

"Racist B***h! You think because you're white you're better than everybody else? do you k [sic] know how much Will.I.Am is worth, you'll never be worth that much in your life!" I did comply shortly & politely, exclusively to be greeted by police.

Will.i.am has called a Qantas flight attendant "racist" after she called the cops on him.

Éric Morena, interprète du tube de 1987, est mort — "Oh ! Mon bateau"
Malade depuis plusieurs mois , il donnait de ses nouvelles à ses fans sur sa page Facebook , s'adressant à eux comme " votre ami le Capitaine du bateau ".

"I was intimidated by five police officers when I landed ... for what?"

Before finishing: "What did I do wrong? Do you understand the intimidation and abuse you are subjecting this woman to with your post?" tweeted Ford, to which Will.i.am swiftly responded. I wasn't out of hand.

Will.I.Am performs with the Black Eyed Peas group during the Vieilles Charrues music festival on July 20, 2019 in Carhaix-Plouguer, western France.

He said: "Please do not send Hate.This type of disrespect and name calling is uncalled for.I don't support abuse & attacks like this.I hope that everyone can be more compassionate & understanding towards one another.because it was the lack of compassion that caused this #noH8 (sic)".

"There was a misunderstanding on board, which seems to have been exacerbated by will.i.am wearing noise-cancelling headphones and not being able to hear instructions from crew", a Qantas spokesperson told Australian outlet 7NEWS.

Australia's national carrier Qantas on Friday successfully completed a 19 -hour, nonstop flight from London to Sydney, which was used to run a series of tests to assess the effects of ultralong-haul flights on crew fatigue and passenger jetlag.

The girl believed to be the flight attendant has been contacted for remark.

'We'll be following up with will.i.am and want him properly for the remainder of the tour'.
