We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make decisions. To support our work, we are paid for providing advertising services. Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Next” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how, where, and in what order ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every product or service that may be available to you. We strive to keep our information accurate and up-to-date, but some information may not be current. So, your actual offer terms from an advertiser may be different than the offer terms on this site. And the advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. All information is presented without any warranty or guarantee to you.

This page may include: credit card ads that we may be paid for (“advertiser listing”); and general information about credit card products (“editorial content”). Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Apply Now” button or “Learn More” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. When you click on that hyperlink or button, you may be directed to the credit card issuer’s website where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer. Each advertiser is responsible for the accuracy and availability of its ad offer details, but we attempt to verify those offer details. We have partnerships with advertisers such as Brex, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Discover. We also include editorial content to educate consumers about financial products and services. Some of that content may also contain ads, including links to advertisers’ sites, and we may be paid on those ads or links.

Scott:   Please take a moment to review the safety data card in the seat pocket in front of you.  Did you also find a package of cocaine in there?  Please return it to flight attendant Priya Govender.

Today, the South African Airways flight attendant has pleaded guilty to a run n’ coke — trying to smuggle 6 kilos of cocaine through Perth Airport.

She was originally arrested in August after arriving in Perth, Australia, on a flight from Johannesburg with the devil powder hidden inside hollowed-out books in her bags.

She was due to face trial for importing a “commercial quantity” of cocaine but switched to a guilty plea in court today.

The maximum penalty is life in jail with no chance of a Priority Pass.

Govender had been a South African Airways flight attendant for 7 years, mediating arm rest disputes and dealing with entitled customers who demand to get their food first — so she’s prepared for prison.
