Man caught shaving his head in his Polaris seat

"A MAN flying in business class was caught shaving his head in his seat during a United Airlines flight."

Looks like row 1 or 9. 9F?? It doesn't say what flight it was on.

This is gross. He should be disallowed from flying in biz for at least one year.

Looks like the sin was committed in a new Polaris seat as well. Couldnít he have done it on a 2-4-2 bird?

yeah, doing it on the 77G (Ghetto) would be more appropriate

In addition to being indecorous, seems pretty dangerous in the event of turbulence.

Joking aside, I have a feeling the relative privacy of the Polaris seat is exactly what made this person have the audacity to pull such a stunt.

He's just a poser. A real man would have been using a straight razor.

I wonder if pax in the Delta One seats (and other airlines with private doors on their J pods) will be more inclined to pursue such gauche acts? If so, it's another reason not to have doors in Polaris.

I once confronted a close friend who shaves his head similarly (although in a private setting in that case). He is completely certain that every hair shorn is captured by the razor with nary a single clipping discharged to the environment. As such he believes the practice is hygienic and inoffensive. I disagree. I'm not sure he'd do it in a public setting though.

Geez, watching that is enough to make one's hair curl.
