    But the photo purportedly taken on arrival at HKG shows a Bangkok Flight Services cleaner on board.

    Obviously he didn't hear the 'Would all ground personnel please leave the aircraft' call. He wanted to go above and beyond.

    Re: EK has another oops between BKK and HKG

    If I was EK I'd go after the Daily Mail, how can they print stories like that, even now, when there are obvious flaws in the photos?

    Maybe I'm opening a can of worms

    Yeah, you would be. It'd be an effort tantamount to Sisyphus.

    Can't stop media outlets from being idiotic, so unless they really are out with the red paint recklessly, why bother. Besides, what kind of axe does the Daily Mail have to grind with Emirates (as compared to, say, BA)?

    It'd be more of a spectacle for EK to litigate against the complainant, but that would be viewed as tyrannical and a SLAPP.

    not quite sure i would describe A380 doors as 'swinging into the cabin and rotating' before being opened either!!
