Brian McFadden and Kyle Sandilands Explain Airport Drama on Kyle and Jackie O Show

Brian and Kyle Share Their Side of the Airport Drama Story

Yesterday Brian McFadden and Kyle Sandilands made headlines when they landed in Sydney on a Virgin flight from LA. It was reported that Brian had been arrested and detained after having a mid-air meltdown that included being drunk, smoking on the plane, and abusing flight attendants and other passengers. Brian quickly used his Twitter to clarify the situation from his end and said he wasn’t arrested. (Fiancée Delta Goodrem also did some damage control.)


This morning he phoned into Kyle and Jackie O’s radio show to shed more light on the matter. He and Kyle explained that they were flying in to start auditions for Australia’s Got Talent (they’re both judges), with Kyle adding, “The dumbest thing? We were wearing matching tracksuits.” As Jackie went through different news headlines Brian and Kyle took turns addressing them. In short: Brian said he did have a few drinks but definitely wasn’t drunk; Kyle said Brian had gone to economy to help a woman with a crying baby; and no one smoked on the flight. As for the police talks that followed, Kyle clarified that “we were never detained, we were never taken into a room” and that the conversation lasted for about 20 seconds.

Their summary for what happened? “Nothing.”
