Unfortunate ad placements continue

Spotted yesterday was this unfortunate ad placement by Emirates airline.

The ad was placed on The Straits Times's online edition, next to a tragic article on a missing plane with 18 passengers dead.

Unfortunately, Emirates' ad runs cheerfully next to it, assuring customers they can sleep "ridiculously well" in its business class seats.
