Time To Boot Some Bottom

Hi chaps. Here is an opportunity to complain. Tell Air New Zealand how disgusted you are with their policy on men sitting next to unaccompanied children. Here is what I wrote:-

Recently I heard of your policy regarding men sitting next to unaccompanied children on your flights.

I am disgusted at the attitude your company has shown towards men in general. I resent the inference that this policy makes about men. Not all men are kiddy fiddlers, or rapists and to treat us as such is sexist.

Is this policy going to be changed? If it is not, I and my family intend to boycot Air New Zealand until you change your policy.

S Kennedy

    That Very Important Frequent Flyer, Santa Claus, has also joined the critics.

    Rotorua insurance broker -- and occasional Santa -- Ken Thompson said he would be insulted if he was asked to move seats and said the policy suggested all male passengers were potential sex offenders.

    Mr Thompson said airline staff were trained to look for suspicious body language and if uneasy about someone's behaviour, they should move a child without saying anything to other passengers.

    Meanwhile, Mr Thompson said he'd never had any parents taking issue with children sitting on his knee when he dressed up as Santa at Christmas functions.

    "They're painting the picture that planes are full of potential paedophiles.
