Reply To: Paid BC PAX being disturb by upgraded PAX on Air China

Back to Forum


While I understand that it is not nice having this disturbance, my questions are:

– if the disturbung passenger had paid full business class fare, would that have made a difference..?

– What if he had paid full fare and you were upgraded, would that make any difference..?

– What if he had a higher status than you (LH HON, SAS Pandion, SQ Soliaire, etc), would that have made things better…?

So basically it is not a question of an UPGRADED passenger behaving like an idiot, but simply SOME passenger doing so.

I do not know how ground staff should figure out how a passenger might behave on board and therefore possibly exclude him/her from an upgrade or choose somebody else, so there is not much that can be done there, either……
