The Veronicas took to social media overnight to release an official statement about their next move, following their removal from a QANTAS flight.

In a recent article posted by the Courier-Mail, it was alleged that Jess and Lisa Origliasso were escorted off a QANTAS flight from Sydney to Brisbane following an argument between the singers and cabin crew.

The article alleged that the duo became disruptive after refusing to place their luggage in the overhead compartment, leading to a delay of the plane’s departure by an hour.

In response to the article (which also featured passenger-captured images), The Veronicas called the incident ‘intimidating and confusing’.

Shared to social media, they wrote, “The details reported are false and in conflict with video recorded during this event, and witness accounts from the flight.”

“The incident was escalated without explanation why from cabin staff. We co-operated with all request from authorities and exited the aircraft.”

While The Veronicas have noted that they are taking legal action – presumably against QANTAS and the media outlets who initially reported on the incident – the Australian Federal Police have issued a statement of their own regarding their involvement.

“AFP officers attended and spoke with staff and two female passengers who were having a verbal dispute onboard an aircraft due to depart for Brisbane.” the statement read.

“AFP officers asked the two female passengers to depart the plane, to which they agreed to with no further issues.”

The Veronicas were in Sydney for a conference held by motivational speaker, Tony Robbins.
