Instagram Influencer Mocked for Doing Business Class Wrong

Instagram Influencer Mocked for Doing Business Class Wrong
Meg Butler

An Instagram Influencer from Hong Kong found herself on her followers’ bad side when she posted a photo of herself sipping Champagne on her Cathay Pacific flight to Rome while draped in Christmas lights. She was also sitting in the seat (J, CX 77W) backwards.

She wrote in the caption: “It was the long dark night during the flight from HK to Rome. Stargazing is one thing to do in the cabin.” The post appears to be sponsored Cathay Pacific as #cathaycreators is tagged in the caption.

But, the Influencer doesn’t seem bothered by the bad press. She’s since posted more photos of herself draped in Christmas lights.

    I’m not even mad. It’s a great picture and people have done worse that sit backwards in a seat for a good looking picture.

    It fits her size and the photo. There is no doing it wrong. She bought the ticket, it’s her seat.
