This weird tale began on a moody taken by video bloggers, Rius Vernandes and Elwiyana Monica, from Sydney to Bali Denpasar.
In a video taken from a business-class cabin, passengers protest of handwritten menus and being told that a booze had run out.
The video uploaded to their YouTube channel (that reaches 49,1000 subscribers) shows a handwritten menu on seperated note paper.
At one indicate in a video, an attendant apologises for a “bad handwriting”.
However, this scabby note was clearly distributed by a cabin crew, in a deficiency of printed lists.
“The passengers in front of me were given a menu like this. we was confused because we were given such a menu,” Rius says in a video.
The videomaker afterwards talks to another span of travellers on a flight, who protest about a miss of not only menus though wine.
The Australian travellers interviewed, named as Paul and Christian, tell Rius: “The booze ran out, champagne, all wine. You come on a moody like this, business class, we design good wine.”
Rius concludes in his video review, “The staff are really embarrassed. There are 40 business category seats and they had 3 bottles of champagne, that’s disappointing. Would we go with Garuda again? we would demeanour during other airlines.”
To make matters worse for Garuda, following a video’s announcement on Saturday, an inner note from a airline was leaked.
This memo summarized a anathema on in-flight photography.
This anathema on photography, apparently in greeting to a vicious YouTube review, was widely mocked on amicable media.
The airline was mocked for a thin-skinned greeting by other video makers and influencers.
Among those criticising a airline enclosed a son of a Indonesian President, Kaesang Pangarep.
However, on Tuesday, it was done transparent that Garuda was vicious about a photography ban.
The airline asked passengers to “not take images, be it photos, videos or request all activities during a flight”.
In a apart press release, released after that day, a position was softened. The matter nice a undisguised ban, observant “passengers can still take cinema for personal interests such as holding selfie cinema while not unfortunate a comfort or harming other passengers.”
However, notwithstanding this flip flop, a airline is not finished with a YouTubers behind a strange vicious video review.
Indonesian military contend they are questioning a matter with a probability of Garuda charging a YouTubers for defamation.
Under Indonesia’s despotic Electronic Transaction law, a videomakers could face fines of adult to 750,000,000 Rupiah ($A80,000) or even 6 years in jail.
Andreas Haranso of Human Rights Watch Indonesia told The Sydney Morning Herald that a law was in apocalyptic need of reform. The Electronic Transaction law was “so rubbery it can used for whatever we wish to do,” he said.
Exactly what Garuda intends to do is now unclear, though for now passengers are left in difficulty and with second thoughts about holding in-flight selfies.
