Yesterday, Sep 11th, I was on flight EK381 from Hong Kong to Dubai. I had a seat assigned but when i checked in, the check in agent told me that she had an exit row seat available and I duly found myself in seat 37A.
The problem was the occupant of seat 37C who, even before we had pushed back from the gate was sitting slumped in his seat, mouth wide open, snoring his head off. The guy in 37B and myself could not believe the sounds that were eminating from him. Even the FA sitting in the crew seat ( a lovely spanish girl called Yanah), was stunned.
So what to do ? This was one big guy and nobody wanted to wake him just in case.
In the end all we could do was sit there and listen to it, for what seemed hoursEdited: 12 September 2010, 08:47
