Reply To: Saudi to segregate male and female passengers?

Back to Forum


On one occasion flying Qatar from LHR to DOH I was asked by a gentleman if I would swop my window seat for a centre aisle seat at the rear of the business cabin to allow his mother who was seated next to me to avoid doing so. I rarely move seats and and especially not when the offered alternative is less desirable. The gentleman ended up sitting next to me and his mother in the row behind next to a lady who clearly was unrelated. On my return journey I witnessed the cabin attendant ask a gentleman passenger if he would be prepared to move in order to accommodate a similar request.
