    "Cathay Pacific is ‘spying on you through in-flight entertainment and even recording your movement’

    Nestled in the back of every seat on this popular passenger airline is a disturbing piece of technology — it’s watching your every move...

    Cathay Pacific passengers have been warned that an updated privacy policy means their movements and preferences are being recorded by the airline through their in-flight entertainment screens as well as at the airport.

    This means that Cathay Pacific could build an extremely detailed database of passengers, including what they look like, what they do at the airport and what programs they watch on the plane.

    Even worse, the information and images will be stored indefinitely, with the carrier claiming it will be for 'as long as necessary'...

    While the information could be used to personalise your experience and comply with local laws, your details could also be shared with 'third party partners for marketing purposes'..."

    oh well guess i cant pick my noise or do some personal intimate massage on this company's plane...ah wait? who do this publicly anyway? in a plane you seat and mostly sleep, that is it, who cares that they record what you do LOL. Before even entering the plane your face and passport has been scanned hundreds times at the airport...

    About 10 years ago I decided I would never fly with Cathay Pacific again, after my 11 hours flight from Amsterdam to Hong Kong. It was truly ridiculous how little legroom they give you. They clearly don't care about customers, to hell with this company! :thumbd:

    How tall are you? I'm 1.94m for 90+kg, for me, all companies has small legrooms. If I'm lucky and the plane not full, I can get a seat near the doors (for free) where I can stretch them.

    Well, I don't think all companies give this little legroom. It's all about pure greed, selling as many tickets as possible, and they don't give a damn about customers. But I have learned my lesson, I now always do research, for example on SeatGuru. And I'm not that tall (1.80m), but even if I was smaller, it would have hardly helped.
