I don't think it is rude if done in a gentle/polite way. If the window passenger is clearly sleeping with the window open, I have gently closed the window if I'm trying to see a screen or want to have a darker cabin. Now if the passenger is awake I think it is only polite to ask if they mind closing the window partially. But really its 100% up to the pax seated in the window the status of said window: open or closed.

He thought it was appropriate because no GA told him otherwise. That's what we're saying on this thread. Random and casual enforcement of the rules means people will get away with stuff like that.

I came in here (sp) thinking I was going to read, 'I'm so and so celebrity, actor, director, exec producer, etc. (Work in entertainment, most are very decent people) So now some DM's and PM's think they are really something and qualify as DYKWIA. LOL Is this the only place they feel good enough that who they are is by what FF level they have gotten. Pathic with a very low areness level. You bought even tickets to gain this status, you did nothing to make the world better.

I assume that you deliberately spelled it "areness" because nobody is in awe of them.

Well I could fib and say yes. But reality was I couldn't find the spell check and should be sleeping at 2:29am. Not on Flyertalk.

Nope. She was well aware. She was just trying the ol' familiar ploy: "Oh, sorry. I am old/foreign/status-holder/just-a-quick-question/can't quite read my boarding number/didn't hear the announcement. Since I'm here already, can't I just continue on to the plane?"

Just pick one of those excuses, and people try them all.
