Abbey Chatfield and Conrad Bien-Stephen return to Sydney after her complaint about a “sexist” restaurant in Italy sparked an international incident
Her whirlwind trip to Europe was, to put it mildly, eventful.
And the drama continued for Abby Chatfield on Tuesday, when she fell into a chaotic state Sydney Airport after a 24-hour flight from the United Kingdom.
Passengers at the airport are experiencing long delays due to a shortage of airline staff and an influx of flyers during the Easter holidays.

Fortunately, Abby seemed to be avoiding the worst, as she and boyfriend Conrad Bien-Stephen were being fed through the International Arrivals Department.
She dressed casually for the flight in a white short top, black pants and velcro slides, and gathered her curly blond hair in a messy bun.
The 26-year-old Hit Network radio host also wore a face mask, which is still a requirement for airline passengers.

31-year-old Carpenter Conrad also kept things calm in a wide white hood, pink hat and beige pants as he pushed the couple’s luggage into a stroller.
The couple spent about two weeks in Europe to attend a friend’s wedding in Scotland and travel around Italy.
Abbey inadvertently caused an international scandal after she complained to TikTok about her “sexist” eating at a luxury restaurant in Venice on April 3.

She was angry because the waiter handed her a menu without prices, and her boyfriend was given a full menu with prices.
The former “Bachelor in Paradise” star also said the situation is ridiculous because she is the “breadwinner” in her relationship.
Her complaint was soon reported in the local press, which led to her being trolled by Italian men who insisted that the “women’s menu” was simply a harmless tradition.

“It may be a tradition, but it is still rooted in patriarchy,” Abby said.
“I am allowed to say that it is sexist, as the tradition is rooted in misogyny and patriarchy,” she added, before confirming that she had paid for the food in question, not Conrad.
Abbey said the idea of men paying in restaurants came from a time when “women did not have bank accounts” and were supposed to be “financially dependent”.
She said the food and service at the restaurant were “beautiful”, but the fact that there were separate menus for men and women made her feel “uncomfortable”.
“Even if he paid … This is the assumption that I can’t or won’t pay [that annoys me]She concluded.
