Etihad in-flight experience
I recently flew First on Etihad from DFW-AUH and noticed a couple of things I hadn’t seen before on other airlines:
1) Etihad blurred the livery of an airline on a movie I was watching. I understand blurring nudity/blood/gore, but I thought blurring an airline name was weird.
2) A couple hours into the flight, someone from Business class came up and slept in the empty First class seat next to me for several hours. He was even served a meal and then right after he went back. Later, another guy came up and had the flight attendant show him the seat (i.e. seat settings, entertainment system, table) and then went back.
Are these things normal?
Jasher, they are unusual, but certainly not beyond the realm of possibility. Companies have all sorts of policies about competition. The passenger might have been someone whose business seat wasn’t reclining or maybe must a relative/fried of a crew member.
What is “normal” anyways… certainly not hurtling through thin air at 35,000 feet in a thin metal tube :).
