What's wrong with this picture?

It seems that Qantas (and Air New Zealand, and British Airways) are under fire for their policy of not seating unaccompanied minors next to men. Some have a slight sneaking suspicion that this just might be a tad discriminatory, others are a bit clearer on the concept. The excuse for this misandry is, of course, passenger safety.

But on the other hand, Qantas are apparently happy to, quite literally, put knives in the hands of their passengers and don't mind at all if you prattle away on your celular phone. The excuse is, of course, passenger convenience.
