I should add, on the return flight two weeks later we had some of the same flight crew onboard. One of them recognised us and apologised for how we were treated.
Sounds bad. Etiad is Middle Eastern? Maybe the flight attendant was Muslim. I think touching is a big no-no for them, right?
It is yeah. We were flying out to Thailand and our connecting flight was in Abu Dhabi. I don't recall if she was Muslim or not but I don't think was. I think she just overreacted and that's why that other crew member apologised to us on our return flight.
