The CEO of Qantas Airways got served a whole pie to the face and never saw it coming!

The incident went down Monday when Alan Joyce was talking to a bunch of business leaders in Australia. Out of nowhere, someone walked onstage with a pie in hand and blasted the unsuspecting honcho ... IN THE FACE!!

Joyce never skipped a beat -- changed into a clean suit, and said these kinda shenanigans go down all the time. The pie-man was reportedly ID'd and arrested.

The airline biz is getting more physical every day.
