A banner from Singapore Airlines at the boarding gates in Bangkok international airport, which segregates economy class passengers from the other classes by telling them to 'wait for your row numbers to be called', has irked STOMPer lin.
The STOMPer wrote:
"While boarding a Singapore Airlines plane at Bangkok airport, I saw these two big 'air ticket' banners at each side of the passenger waiting area.
"I don't feel really great and happy when I saw the "big ticket" banners to help direct the passengers.
"On the big 'economy class ticket', you can see the words 'Please wait for your number to be called'.
"Yes, I may not be taking business class now but please consider the feelings of economy class passengers.
"Come on, economy class passengers are adults too -- we understand the waiting period for our row numbers to be called. There is no need to make it so obvious by printing such a 'big ticket' banner.
"Please don't treat economy class passenger like kids please! For some reason, the banner just makes me feel that economy class passengers are not welcomed on the flight.
"I just hope Singapore Airlines can be sensitive and do better than this 'discriminating' method before more people get offended and switch to other airlines."
