Victoria Beckham has landed herself in a controversy after she posed for a picture in a crew-only seat on a Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong.



"Cabin crew prepare for landing! Welcome to Beijing!! X vb," the former Spice Girl wrote on Twitter alongside a photograph of her sitting in the crew seats aboard the Beijing-bound flight on Friday.



Wearing sunglasses and a peach-coloured dress, she appears to be making an announcement on the public address system while a stewardess sitting next to her pulls a funny face.

The Hong Kong Standard newspaper reported that the wife of English football star David Beckham had been criticised on internet forums for putting the flight’s safety at risk.



An airline spokeswoman said the stunt was harmless but "inappropriate." But she said that the photo was not taken at any critical stage of the flight, such as take-off or landing.



"The passenger only posed for the picture. No public announcement was made," the spokeswoman told a foreign news agency.



"It was inappropriate as ... the crew seats are only for the cabin crew and passengers should not be allowed to touch any of the aircraft equipment," she added.
