Tantrum throwing Faye Dunaway denied upgrades on flights

New York, Feb 21 (ANI): Actress Faye Dunaway, who was nicknamed “The Bitch” by flight attendants on one US airline, is said to have been denied an upgrade due to the notorious in-flight tantrums she threw.

A stewardess claims that before Dunaway, 70, boarded one early ’90s flight to London’s Heathrow, airline management contacted flight attendants and ground staff and told them that under no circumstances should they upgrade the actress.

“This was the only time this ever happened in my career,” the New York Post quoted her as saying.

Sure enough, Dunaway turned up at JFK with a coach ticket to London and demanded an upgrade.

“She was a total bitch, screaming at everyone and saying, ‘Don’t you know who I am?’” the stewardess revealed.

“But we refused and sat her at the front of coach, where she could see there were seats free in business and first class, which made her even more furious.

“When we brought out the meal service, she snapped, ‘I am not eating,’ as if we would care,” she said.

But the attendant added that the flight crew took a cue from ‘Mommy Dearest’, in which Dunaway played a monstrous Joan Crawford who railed, “No wire hangers, ever!” and got their revenge.

“When she fell asleep, one steward said, ‘I’m going to get that [bleep]‘ and grabbed a bunch of wire hangers and put them on the seat next to her,” the stewardess revealed.

“All the other passengers were snickering. When she woke up as the plane landed, she was wide-eyed with fury, and looked around [for] whom to blame but had no idea who did it.

“Then she got up and did yoga in the aisle to calm herself down,” she added. (ANI)
