    Good to see that he was no hurt and could joke about it on his return to the stage

    Qantas chief Alan Joyce hit with pie in face

    Yes, good that no-one was hurt. Some might find a cream pie attack funny but I don’t and speakers certainly don’t nowadays – a sudden lunge by someone could just as easily have been be a deadly attack with intent to kill for all the speaker knew at the time.

    Absolutely. Particularly senseless since no one knows why he did it and what he was protesting about – layoffs? Or was it just a prankster?

    I read that the assailant had been taken into custody. Perhaps he should have been taken into custardy……..

    Must have been good security at the venue if the “attacker” could get in and as far as the stage carrying a cream pie.

    The Assailant clearly flew British Airways, no one wuld notice!
    Many passengers bring their own decent food rather than buy on board now.
    They must be used to seeing people with their own bags of food on board, and taking whats left and they have paid for, off, so I am sure a cream pie would not be unusual.

    Now a Greggs sausage roll would have been a different matter…?

    It was surely a trifling event

    …Tom…I think it was reported as a ‘custard-pie’….’cream-pie’…is something else…ahem…

    Written, I am told, without the space or hyphen!

    Now Ekond222, that is the “icing on the cake”, and surely something appreciated by “hundreds and thousands”. Not something to be trifled with…………..

    There’s a rumour that the thrower was a sponger.

    The guy that pied Alan Joyce has said he done so due to AJ’s support of same sex marriage legislation in Australia. Appalling. I was actually shocked that Australia doesn’t already have such legislation in place.

    Australian friends are stating he was assaulted by a Tart!
    But perhaps he did get his just Desserts, (unlike the food for travelers available in their lounges).

    Could it be a plot from within Emirates, as they are 70% profits down, still ordering the World’s largest Aircraft, and Qantas & Air NZ still exist?!!
    They are being seen as the Bullying Airline for Qantas, Virgin Australia, and certainly have almost wiped out the Wonderful Air New Zealand.
