Keith Urban Jokes About Airline Steward Offering Him Wine

Quantas Airlines has issued a brief statement after one of its stewards offered Keith Urban a bottle of wine during a weekend flight in Australia, according to the Australian newspaper, The Daily Telegraph. Urban last year voluntarily admitted himself to an alcohol abuse treatment center. On the Sunday (May 20) flight from Sydney to Adelaide, one of Urban’s assistants responded to the steward’s offer by noting that the singer-songwriter “doesn’t drink.” Later during his concert in Adelaide, Urban reportedly told the crowd, “I knew I was back in South Australia when the host came up to me, smiled, gave me a bottle of red and said, ’Welcome to Adelaide, Mr. Urban.'” In a written statement, a Quantas spokesman said the steward “genuinely did not realize who the passenger was.”
