Denied boarding to Jakarta due to 'damaged' passport

Attached scan of 'damaged' page, dark coloured card inserted to show extent of damage on that side. On the other side the small tear is probably half the width of the other, if you get my drift.

I actually believe the tear is longer now given all the examinations the pp has been under of late!
Hmmm that seems so minor and really general wear and tear.

Qantas probably lucky it found that minor tear to weasel out of getting you to your connection.

get me outta here

Yeah no, I always have a full face of make up after getting off in JFK having arrived via the EU the long way around, albeit in SQ F. ;)

Note to the unwary - ladies that is - always wear full makeup and a red lippy when getting your passport and driver's licence photos taken. Makes a big difference. Another saying - if anyone can recognise you from your passport or licence photo - you're sicker than you thought!

At least you would have enjoyed a personal mirror at your suite! Or, the fabulously gargantuan bathroom on SQ F.

I have to glom it in VA's teeny tiny toilet - the red lippy "scar" I swipe when there's a hint of turbulence makes me look like the Joker from Batman.
