One commenter said that he once saw North Korean officials being allowed to sit on suitcases that had been piled up at the back of the plane behind a curtain.

We love all Muslims, especially if they're from Dubai.” Previously believed to be a fabled country where mythological aquatic creatures roamed, the People's Republic of Bangladesh (Bengali: বাংলাদেশ) is now a place with a lot of people and a lot of problems.
According to scientists, there are several reasons for this, in particular that Bangladesh is home to more people than Health and Safety would allow.
This is quite surprising, given that large chunks of this population are regularly eliminated by the country's most successful home-grown product, natural disasters.
In fact, they have interestingly been living abroad for over fourteen years teaching in countries as diverse as Pakistan, the Gaza Strip, Moscow, and Germany.
The primary reason was because even very well seasoned travelers within Asia who have been traveling consistently for as many as seven straight years had not stepped foot within Bangladesh boarders. On March 12, I was scheduled on a Biman Air flight from Bangkok to Dhaka.My partner decided to check out what was at the back of the plane behind a curtain, thinking it would be the toilets or the galley.‘It was the luggage compartment and all the bags and freight were just thrown at random in there and stacked in piles.There were a couple of officials sitting on the top of it all, smoking.Cyclones, floods, famines, tornadoes, occasional earthquakes etc., Bangladesh has them all.It has even started up a nice sideline in mass arsenic poisoning thanks to contaminated ground water.While standing in line to check in my baggage, I noticed that the light skinned foreigner in front of me had watery liquid dripping from her luggage onto the floor directly underneath her baggage cart.When I pointed this out to her she responded, she laughed.Before we landed, Veronika handed me her address and phone number and I agreed to go over to her house in Dhaka before heading off to the American Club together.Veronika and her husband John have been living the past five years in Dhaka working as teachers.That’s not how they’re marketing them to us, of course. These new social apps come with an obvious price tag: the annoying advertisements that we believe to be the fee we have to pay for our pleasure.No, the message is much more seductive: Data, Silicon Valley is fond of saying, is the new oil. But there’s a second, more hidden price tag -- the reams of data about ourselves that we give away. Inside your mobile phone and hidden behind your web browser are little known software products marketed by contractors to the government that can follow you around anywhere.No longer the wide-eyed fantasies of conspiracy theorists, these technologies are routinely installed in all of our data devices by companies that sell them to Washington for a profit.And the Valley’s message is clear enough: we can turn your digital information into fuel for pleasure and profits -- if you just give us access to your location, your correspondence, your history, and the entertainment that you like. Just like raw petroleum, it can be refined into many things -- the high-octane jet fuel for our social media and the asphalt and tar of our past that we would rather hide or forget.
