Reply To: Were AF biz class pax robbed on overnight flight ?

A cautionary tale from this Reuters news piece. It seems that a number of Air France business class passengers were victims of a pickpocket onboard the overnight flight between Tokyo Narita and Paris CDG.

Most airlines flying Tokyo to Europe operate daylight flights but Air France is an exception. The AF flight in question arrives at CDG very early in the morning at 0400hrs. This is a time when, says one of the victims, “passengers often sleep deeply.”

The moral when taking any overnight flight is to ensure valuable are safely stowed.
