Man complains Virgin made him feel like a pedophile8/11/2012
A Virgin Australia passenger is complaining the airline made him feel like a pedophile. Johnny McGirr, 33, said he was seated next to two 10-year-old boys on a flight to Brisbane when an attendant asked him to move, telling him men cannot sit next to unaccompanied minors. Red-faced, McGirr got up as the attendant placed a woman in his seat instead. After the flight, he blogged about the incident, calling it embarrassing and sexist. The post has now fueled a fiery Facebook debate, with some people agreeing with McGirr that the policy is discriminatory while others say the airline is correct to protect children. Virgin Australia said it is currently reviewing the policy. [Source]
