Ouch: Etihad Criticizes A380 Pilots For Viral Crosswind Landing – One Mile at a Time

This is quite the landing! The first time through, I actually didn’t watch all the way to the end, which is something you should do in light of the criticism levied at the pilots from their own airline.

What seemed cut and dry to me (that you can switch seats) actually isn’t clear, based on the responses from the airline to the poor lady in first class and then the follow up by a spokesperson.
