Though perpetrated last March, an in-flight incident where a Fijian soldier flashed himself, then urinated on a Japanese woman on a plane has ended up doing “untold damage” to Fiji’s reputation as a holiday paradise. And you couldn’t make up some of the quotes by the Fijiian officialdom:
Urinating on a tourist on an international flight is a high-profile incident which gains global notoriety (you don’t say!!). It is a brief moment which brings unwanted exposure (boom boom) and deprives the economy of millions of dollars in revenue.”<
The case has led to stern reminders of how everyone can be either a good (or bad) brand ambassador as far as international tourism is concerned. Hat tips to the The Age via stuff.co.nz.
