Passengers warned to flush their drugs down the toilet

An Australian airline has apologised after passengers were warned to flush their drugs down the toilet before landing.

An attendant on a Jetstar flight from the Gold Coast to Sydney told passengers that sniffer dogs and inspectors were waiting.

The warning to flush "anything you shouldn't have" reportedly sparked a rush to the toilets, according to the BBC.

Many of the passengers were reportedly returning from the Splendour in The Grass music festival which is held near Byron Bay.

A Jetstar spokesman said "the crew member's words were poorly chosen and plainly at odds with the professional standards we'd expect from our team".

He said the attendant would be reprimanded - but members of the public called for leniency with one posting on Facebook: "Fair dinkum true blue Aussie flight attendant."
