Qantas flight attendent Lisa Robertson: The liaison happened when the plane was seven miles high
Sirin Lewenden has ended her five-month romance with the Oscar-nominated star Ralph Fiennes citing his wandering eye
The Qantas stewardess who claimed she rejected an amorous Ralph Fiennes on a flight to India has admitted having sex with him in an aircraft lavatory.
Lisa Robertson told friends she was a big fan of the British actor and found herself luring him to the cubicle.
But they apparently shared more than a 15-minute fling at 35,000ft.
Miss Robertson claims they went on to share a passionate night in a Mumbai hotel - at the star's invitation.
The Australian stewardess has told friends she recognised Fiennes, 44, as he soon as he settled into his business class seat, 2K, for the nine-hour flight from Darwin.
"I've always fancied him and to see him on my flight was a real thrill," she told them.
Later she allowed him to break aircraft rules by sitting beside her on the crew jump seat, which is used during their break.
After chatting together, there was, she has admitted, a lot of 'body language' between them and even the odd kiss or two.
She gave him her phone number. Finally she decided to take matters into her own hands.
"I just stood up, reached down for his hand and told him to follow me," she told friends.
"We went into the toilet and locked the door and off came much of our clothes."
She said they then had passionate and apparently unprotected sex.
Other crew members, more than a little suspicious, waited outside the door and later reported her to airline bosses.
Miss Robertson, 38, told friends she was so overwhelmed with the moment that she did not care who was listening, what they saw or what they assumed had been going on.
That is in stark contrast to what she told her bosses at Qantas.
In a statement, she portrayed Fiennes as the villain, claiming he had followed her into the lavatory where he made his intentions clear.
She said that she had told him it was inappropriate to follow her there and, after a short time, convinced him to leave.
She told her bosses she had been so alarmed at being followed that she expected one of the other crew to help her.
"At no time did any crew member come to my assistance," she complained.
She also insisted that at no time were any other passengers aware of the incident.
It is hard to believe that they didn't notice staff gathered outside a lavatory for so long. Or the fact that two people eventually emerged, one an Oscar-nominated actor.
After the plane landed in Mumbai shortly after 7pm local time Miss Robertson travelled to the Grand Hyatt, a 20-minute drive from the city's international airport.
Staff at the hotel confirmed to the Daily Mail yesterday that the Qantas crew had been booked in as usual that night.
But Miss Robertson apparently did not use her room.
She has told friends that not long after arriving in Mumbai her mobile phone rang.
It was Fiennes. He wanted to see her again.
They met at a hotel and spent a passionate night together, this time practising safe sex.
"Lisa was completely smitten by him," said a friend. "She just hoped that the relationship could continue on from there but perhaps she was hoping for too much."
It is understood she has not heard from Fiennes since their encounter.
According to the actor's schedule, he had to set off the next morning for engagements in Indian villages, which included 'preaching' about the dangers of Aids and the need to engage in safe sex.
Days before the incident last month, Fiennes's girlfriend Sirin Lewenden is said to have ended their relationship because of his 'wandering eye' and constant demands for sex.
Yesterday it emerged that the liaison with Fiennes could prove rather profitable for Miss Robertson, who was declared bankrupt three years ago.
She is said to have spent this week negotiating media deals to tell the story of her fling on flight QF123 and has gone into hiding.
A former undercover drug-squad officer for New South Wales police, her marriage to a police officer ended in divorce apparently due to the demands of their jobs.
Police sources said yesterday that she had suffered 'burn out' due to the pressure of her job posing as a drug addict to catch criminals.
She left the force in 2003 after two years of long-term sick leave.
Police sources said her condition was serious enough to leave her with a pension of 80 per cent of her wages for the rest of her life.
However, she later fell heavily into debt.
Sydney newspapers reported that she went bankrupt three years ago with debts of £200,000, and still has several months to wait before she is discharged. Since the story emerged at the weekend Fiennes has chosen not to comment.

Mile-high hostie says she could be pregnant
Former Qantas flight attendant Lisa Robertson has revealed there is "a chance" she is pregnant following an unprotected mid-flight fling with actor Ralph Fiennes.
Robertson detailed the airborne encounter with Fiennes, who she rated a "10 out of 10" lover, on 60 Minutes last night.
"So I suppose there's a chance that you could be pregnant with Ralph Fiennes's baby," 60 reporter Peter Overton asked the 38-year-old.
"Perhaps, yeah, I haven't really thought about that much," Robertson replied.
If she did fall pregnant Robertson believes that Fiennes "would probably have a nervous breakdown ... he's quite sensitive, you know."
Robertson, who was sacked by Qantas after she admitted to having sex with Fiennes in the toilet cubicle on the January 24 flight from Darwin to Mumbai, also revealed how the mile-high deed was carried out.
"Anything's possible (in the lavatory)," she told Overton, "... I was just on the sink and then arms, legs everywhere."
Despite admitting that she "did the wrong thing", Robertson said the encounter wasn't as immoral as it might have seemed.
"We, I didn't kill anyone, I didn't hurt anyone, no other customers on the aircraft knew about this or were disturbed by this, I was on my break, it was [an] interaction that happened between two people."
The 175cm blonde stewardess, who quit the NSW police force after 14 years because of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, told the UK's Sunday Mail that she and Fiennes flirted on the plane and then the actor suggested he join her for a chat when she took her break.
It was then, in the curtained-off crew area, they began kissing and undressing.
Scared they would be caught, Robertson led Fiennes to the lavatory.
"I was a bit shocked that he didn't wear a condom," she said.
"Looking back, I think of it as dangerous and hypocritical given that he was going to India to talk about AIDS."
Ms Robertson, who went bankrupt after she sued police over an alleged lack of care regarding her mental health, said she didn't know what she would do next, but was confident she would "bounce back".
