Generous first class passenger who ........

Jack (not his real name) was a frequent first class passenger. He was rich and always generous to the cabin crew.  Whenever Jack was on the flight, the crew would be rewarded,either with generous tips or taken out for sumptuous meals at outstations.
Sometimes, when the crew had long stay in Australia, Jack would use his connection and obtain free tickets from domestic airlines and fly the crew eg. from Perth to Brisbane or any city in Australia for a short holiday. This practice went on for a few years until one day the crew were shock to read in the newspaper that Jack was caught by the Australian authorities for drug smuggling.
Jack was sentenced to 20 years in prison. It is believed that Jack died before he was released.
This story happened some 40 years ago.
