    Under UAE law, homosexuality can be punished by imprisonment. Maybe Etihad (and Emirates) cut the scene, in accordance with UAE laws.

    I don’t think airlines have a censoring committee. Most likely censoring happens at the distributors since we have multiple airlines being called out on the same issue.
