Astonishing the FAs let him get away with that (unless it was an FA!).

What they could do? Land plane on North Pole and remove him from flight?

Don't hate just because he thought of it and pulled it off.

Many years ago I flew from Cairo to LHR in BA C (pre flatbed era). It seemed that everyone that morning had a bad stomach, or worse. There was no aisle space left for all the passengers stretched out in any place they could find. Hands down the worst flight I ever took.

Wow, seems like a common thing for that route. Saw similar attempts by a woman on SQ1 sitting in emergency exit row. Poor FA had to repeatedly remind her not to do it.

Saw it more than once over one year period and exactly on that route. BTW, it was last flight on 747 I took. I've learned to avoid 747 in Y at all costs and on my SIN-US flights I always go thru NRT.

Nope, they don't. Unless you count Bud Light as a 'liquor'.

It is all the way at the end of the Y cabin.

Looks like the aft side of the G7 galley and in front of the aft lavs. Behind the last row of coach.

Thai Airways used to always have on-board announcements telling passengers NOT to sleep on the floor.

Lol, there are a number of reasons never to fly Y on a UA 747 (no AVOD) but that's certainly a new one I will add to my list
