    I thought yoy actually had something bad happen to you. The fact that you were asked not to film easily could have been put in the review as a singular sentence. Besides, it's 100% their right to ask you not to film, it's invasion of privacy. You're acting like the victim of some crime.

    It's 50% of the way thru this video before he explains what happened and it's a very minor thing, feel a little deceived since there was like zero drama. This was literally a grab for views. Sam Chui doesn't pull this crap.

    They are loads and loads of reviews of these suits on YouTube so it’s odd that they told him and just him out of all of them not to film. Seems fishy. And the fact he did this in 2 videos seems very click baity

    Maybe ask before you film someone. It is invasive, these people are working and some people are uncomfortable being filmed. Give them an opportunity to say no and if they choose not to be filmed accept that no with grace.

    He didn't film anyone, well he filmed the chef but he would have seen the camera and if he didn't want to be filmed then he would have said so

    Exactly, the staff don't make proportionately more in first class to be surreptitiously filmed in their workplace. His ticket fare does not carry any entitlement to film. +_ _

    As a hospitality professional I would also warn my coworkers if a customer was filming our every move. I don’t think it’s something negative but people should know that they are being recorded

    In this day and age, everyone should expect that they're being recorded, especially personnel attending to someone on a luxury flight, cruise, etc. What exactly are you doing when you are working that you're so afraid to be seen?

    So, you were asked not to do something, did it anyway, and now you feel uncomfortable? Think about the flight crew and how they must feel.

    +Virgo editzz Are you forgetting that he WAS still filming after being told to stop? So their conversation was 100% true and reasonable!

    You don't pay upwards of $8,000 for a flight to care about the crews' 'feelings'. Sounds harsh, but it's a service they provide they do so willingly. One should have every right to record their own flight experience.

    Oh, you felt "so" uncomfortable. Well maybe others feel uncomfortable being filmed without permission while doing their jobs. Sure, in public it means you're just being a nuisance, but on a private plane you have a ticket to fly on, then its a little different. They're all being polite and tolerating you. And you are clearly a little sociopathic. It is uncomfortable when unqualified people walk into your place of work and openly film you for the sole purpose of judging your performance. But i...

    Dan, theres a consistent display of disconnect in your description of what you perceive as these people disrespecting you. You disrespected them. They are not your personal servants, nor props. They are people there who HAVE to be their because its their JOB. They have their private lives and reasons. They showed up to work, not to be in your personal youtube channel.I don’t mind someone sharing an experience, especially one as exclusive as a high end flying experience. However, in the future:1...

    you were talking about etihad hiring certain ethnicities over others with your cabin door wide open you fool. Don't you understand how others would perceive that kind of talk? no wonder they wanted you to stop filming them ... this guy is truly an ignoramus

    When he said that I thought “that’s a strange thing to point out.” Weird

    Samran Khan Unless the staff were camping outside his suite for the whole flight, they never heard that as he wasn't even talking with a normal voice. Plus, he didn't say anything about ethnicities being hired over others. He simply asked why this Middle Eastern airline only had European/African employees. It's a valid question. Just like you wouldn't expect only Asians on a flight with Iceland Air.

    Having lived for a few years in the middle east, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Muscat and being friends with several pursers maybe I can share my view on this issue. There are very strict laws regarding recording of other people, even in completely public spaces and there have been quite a few expats who have found themselves in trouble with the authorities for innocent recordings they have made. In addition, in Emirates, Etihad and specially Qatar Air, crew are constantly fearing for their jobs. It is not li...

    That sounds terrible. Hard to believe that crew members report each other.

  • Dave Sturdy

     (Aug 2, 2018)

    I suspect the other passengers could hear you talking during your flight, not a criticism , just maybe?

  • B Bodziak

     (Feb 12, 2019)

    I've been a flight attendant for 30 years and my airline (one of the top 3in the US) has a regulation that passengers may be asked not to film in the cabin if other passengers are present & would be captured in the video/still photography. Of course, anyone filming/taking still photos that are of an "odd nature" & might present a security issue are also not permitted, ie, photos of the main &/or cockpit doors and their operation, galley configurations, etc could be considered a s...

    I think the crew had the right to tell each other he was filming and also to ask him to stop. As for your comment, I believe he said he was the only passenger in the cabin.
