I suppose it would depend on how far you got. Would seem overly generous to give you the full miles balance when you didn't reach the destination! :P

There's your cause then. Grossly overloaded.

Who's going to be the first to complain on the airlines Facebook page?

Indeed, especially when you also consider the 10,000 bottles of champagne loaded for the pre flight drink.

I thought the programme was good but it was such a controlled crash that it can't possibly be a fair indicator of where is 'safest' to sit. It's always going to come down to what type of crash it is.

I think the useful info is all the stuff that people on this site will already know but unfortunately those less 'educated' think they know; pay attention to the safety demo, do as instructed by the cabin crew, stow luggage safety etc.

I can't help wondering how on earth did the aircraft leave the ground with all the passengers on board, not to mention all the bottles of champagne necessary for the 1,000+ first class passengers on board.

The whole aircraft made the A380 look like a teeny-tiny Cessna given the passenger numbers

Depends on whether you survive ;)
