Hi all, I had an issue on a Qantas flight to CBR-MEL-SIN in April where I was turned around by ABF.

ABF jobsworths in action, petty bureaucrats drunk on power.

I had this issue in Auckland a while back flying Emirates. Checked in ,had boarding pass, went to go through customs and denied. Went back to desk, staff member came with me and after speaking with customs I went through.Was told customs had not been notified flight checkin had opened so their computer had not automatically changed status.
