interested, be sure to ask to see the facility during your next flight with

Thanks for that Vasco. It might well be that the particular flight another poster was on, was a training flight and perhaps the cabin crewmember had poor English.

Anyway, I'm glad about this. I was going to avoid SIA and particularly with the A3XX likely to appear in SIA livery, it's good to know they haven't gone the FAA way.
