Whilst on holiday in Japan this week the news about UA dragging a passenger off a plane went viral around the world. I flew with a budget airline but wasn’t worried about this happening on my flight. After all, I’m sure no one in their right mind would do anything so insane again. More importantly, Japan is well known for their courteous manners. Upon departure, as the ground staff on the tarmac signalled to our pilot for our plane to leave they did so followed by a ninety degrees bow. Then as our aircraft gradually moved away they stood there waving us off until we could no longer see them. This is what I call manners.
