But one guy took his expectations to the next level.

Here's his complaint he made to the Singapore Airlines Facebook page:

So SQ probed:

I wonder if Lim requires the stewardess to be the exact same one.

The Internet to the rescue

Forum users over at Hardwarezone picked up this complaint and started a thread - NEW SAGAT! Stefan Lim sits SIA premium economy but KPKB why no one serve him his champagne! - and netizens promptly descended on the Facebook post to give Lim some choice words. He responded at first:

But more people piled in with common sense:

And others joined in the fun:

Special shout-out to Eugene, a man after our own heart:
