    I love the extra perks airlines offer international, first-class passengers, especially amenity kits. But I'm not about to refuse to fly, or delay a flight, because they're out of amenities.

    But that's exactly what happened onboard a Qantas flight from Los Angeles to Melbourne, Australia, recently. Two first-class passengers refused to fly after learning the airline was out of extra large first-class pajamas, according to Australian newspaper The Herald Sun.

    Their insistence caused a 30-minute departure delay, while they deplaned and their checked bags were removed. The two passengers were offered jammies from business class. But no, business-class pajamas weren't suitable for the high class duo, according to the newspaper.

    There's much subtle symbolism to this story. Could become a classic "sign of our times".
