A teenager is suing Virgin Australia after suffering horrific burns to his genitals on board a 15-hour flight.

Rhett Butler, 15, claims a ‘faulty tray’ caused piping hot coffee to pour onto his lap leaving him with ‘blisters that looked like jellyfish’ on his private parts.

He also alleges the flight crew did not give him adequate care to treat his injury.

The teenager claims he was left in agony after the incident 40 minutes into a 15-hour flight from Los Angeles to Sydney to May 3, 2015.
