Good PR job by Etihad?

Possibly...the realm of conspiracy theory can be so very delectable, but ultimately discrediting to its exponent and a distraction to the real issue.

I'm more interested in the subject matter....The facts will speak for itself.

Very interesting to hear the outcome. Stay tuned...

This isn't something we'd cover, although News Corp's The Courier Mail (based in Brisbane) ran a story yesterday: http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/passenger-suing-etihad-airlines-for-227000-after-being-seated-next-to-grossly-overweight-passenger/story-fnn8dlfs-1227463158830

Stories have also been run by Fairfax and AAP, so it's not like it's been missed by Aussie media...

The perils of flying Y with narrow seats !  I hope Mr Bassos's efforts help to bring about change to the way that airlines appoach this issue.
