Today's Samoa Observer reports on Vaimauga West MP, Patu Ativalu, who asked the hard questions in Parliament yesterday. As the Minister responsible for the Airport Authority was speaking about recent developments at the airport, Patu interrupted with a question: can the seats on the planes be made bigger?
"They should make the seats bigger because I'm not the only big person here," he said. "Most Samoans are big people."
Every time Patu travels, he said, he always look out for a row of seats where there is only one person. Why?
"You see, flying should be a comfortable experience otherwise if you get squeezed in between two people, you end up farting on the seat."
