Why book an economy class seat, than apply some social media arm-twisting to force an airline to upgrade you to a much more expensive seat in business class? That’s what one angry ang moh has been doing to Singapore Airlines, apparently for some time now. His “I’m too long for this seat” excuse didn’t sit well with SIA which has repeatedly turned down his request.
Redwire urges SIA to offer all tall, loud-mouthed ang mohs complemintary business class upgrades. The airline should also dump all tiny Singapore girls below 1.6m in height in the luggage hold. That way, us average height guys get to stretch out in economy.
An unreasonable demand? Of course. But why not give it a shot!
If you’re curious to know more about the angry ang moh, Roger Pocock, here’s his bio published on the Monash University website. He’s an associate professor with the Australian school.
“Associate Professor Roger Pocock obtained his DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2004. He conducted his postdoctoral training at Columbia University in New York from 2004-2009, where he used the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans to study mechanisms that control neuronal adhesion and axon guidance, in addition to the ability of neuronal circuits to respond to environmental stress. In 2010, he opened his own research group at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark where he has continued to work on fundamental questions in neuronal development and function.
In January 2015, Roger will move his research to Australia where he will be Group Leader of the Neuronal Development and Plasticity Laboratory in the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, Monash University.”
