A woman who was burned by a spilled cup of tea on an international flight claimed that she could never be on a flight again because the experience was marked for life.
Dimity Plaister, 47, of the Gold Coast, Queensland, claimed that she was overgrown with tea during a Hawaiian Airlines flight from Brisbane to Honolulu in 2017.
She filed a lawsuit in the federal court in Brisbane and sought compensation for the alleged incident.

She claimed that a male stewardess had spilled the hot drink on her lap, seeping through her clothes and burning her buttocks, leaving a permanent scar, The Courier Mail reported.
According to court documents, Plaister claimed that she had ordered a cup of tea at 11:45 p.m. that the attended flight had been placed on a tray in front of her.
& # 39; In the process of passing on a carton of milk to (Mrs. Plaister) for her tea, the cabin crew member smashed the cup of black tea in her lap, & # 39; sets the claim.
Mrs. Plaister claims that the flight attendant knocked over the tea and she exclaimed: & I have to take off my pants, they will burn me & # 39; and & # 39; I need to get up & # 39 ;.
But the airline reportedly denied the accusation and defended its staff in a defense that was filed in court last month, saying the staff were not acting negligently.
The airline also said that if it turned out to be wrong, the 47-year-old failed to take appropriate care when looking for some milk after the tea was given to her.

Mrs. Plaister denied that she was responsible and claimed that she was unable to prevent the hot tea from spilling on her hips, thighs, and buttocks because her arms were at rest.
The passenger also claimed that she was having a conversation at that time with her mother, who was sitting next to her.
She also claimed that she was not looking at the entertainment system on the flight or wearing headphones and drinking a glass of champagne just three hours earlier.
The alleged incident was so traumatic that she now sees a psychologist to help her deal with the fear that she can no longer get on the plane, Plaister claimed.
She also claimed that the ordeal ruined her 10-day vacation because she was unable to amuse herself because of her burns and now feels self-conscious about the scar.
The Plaister case returns to the court on July 30.
