Case insisted to BuzzFeed News that her tweets were genuine, stating: "[I have] no idea how I’d make her up."

She said Abdul, the man who sat next to Nadia, played along with her behaviour until she got in trouble and passed out.

The TV editor said the couple in front of the woman confronted her after she spilled a drink on them and a shouting match ensued, with the woman in particular going after the wife, who Case described as "a nice Aussie woman".

Case said police pulled up while the plane was arriving at the gate and escorted Nadia off.
