TWO Qantas passengers died on separate domestic flights to and from Perth today - within about 20 minutes of each other.
The airline confirmed with PerthNow that there were two “medical emergencies” on flight 589 from Sydney to Perth and flight 642 from Perth to Sydney.
Perth Airport originally said a male passenger on QF589 had collapsed and died in the Qantas terminal in Perth but Qantas has since told PerthNow he died mid-flight this morning.
“We are unable to say anything else because of passenger confidentiality,” a Qantas spokeswoman told PerthNow.
Qantas flights have 2 deaths flying over Australia.,
She realized that the snack she was eating, bought from Qantas and supplied by the Sydney Biscuit Company, were infested with maggots -- as were other packets.
Passengers of flight QF436 were given a hot beef, cream and horseradish sandwich for their lunchtime meal today, only to be told 20 minutes into eating the sandwich that they were out of date – expired by a week, in fact.

TERRIFIED passengers thought they were going to die in a mid-air nightmare after a passenger aboard a Sydney-bound flight threatened: "I hope you have life insurance".
"He eye-balled me from behind the curtain and ran his finger across his neck suggesting he was going to kill me."
"When the police pulled him off the plane he was yelling out to them 'you f ... ... c ... .' and 'f ... ... pigs'," Mr Schwerdtfeger, from the Gold Coast, said. "It was terrifying."
the man was acting bizarrely during the 60-minute flight - but really became agitated when quizzed by cabin crew about the number of toilet breaks. One passenger said the man looked so angry the veins on his neck were "popping out"
