A YouTuber could face criminal charges after a picture he posted of a handwritten in-flight menu on Indonesia’s flagship airline went viral
A YouTuber could face criminal charges after his photo of a handwritten menu on his Garuda Indonesia flight went viral. Rius Vernandes later shared a video in which he said he wasn’t trying to hurt the airline’s reputation. The airline said that the menu was meant for only one crew member’s use. Rius said he had been accused of defamation and reported to the police, and a news agency said the police confirmed that the airline had sued him. Under Indonesia’s laws, those found guilty of defamation could face years in prison. The airline also sought to ban photos and videos during flights but appeared to backtrack to The Guardian by saying that the policy was not finalized and that people could take photos if they didn’t disturb other passengers.

A YouTuber could face criminal charges after his photo of a handwritten menu from his flight on Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia’s flagship airline, was mocked online. Rius Vernandes, who has 121,000 followers on Instagram and 500,000 subscribers on YouTube and often reviews his flights, shared the image of the menu on his business-class flight on Saturday with the caption “The menu is still being printed sir,” The Guardian reported. The menu, written on a white piece of paper, showed options including beef steak and crème brûlée. The image went viral in Indonesia. Rius made a video about the topic on Sunday, promising to share “what really happened behind Garuda’s business-class handwritten menu.”Foto: Rius also shared footage of his food when it arrived.sourceYouTube/Rius Vernandes He shared footage of the flight, including the menu, and said he did not mean to harm Garuda’s reputation. The airline told the German press agency DPA that the menu was made by a cabin crew member to use themselves and was not supposed to be given to passengers. The Guardian said that in an internal memo on Sunday, the airline said it would ban crew members and passengers from taking photos and videos on flights. But Garuda’s corporate secretary, Ikhsan Rosan, told the newspaper on Tuesday that this policy had “not yet been finalised, and should not have been shared to the public.” Rosan added that people could still take pictures on flights “for their own use” and “as long as they don’t disturb the other passengers.”Read more: Indonesia’s flagship airline moves to cancel $5 billion order for 49 Boeing 737 Max 8 jets after deadly crashes In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Rius said that he had been accused of defamation and reported to the police but that he had “no intention at all to defame anyone.” The police confirmed to DPA that the airline had filed a defamation case against him.
