British Airways: True Story

  

This was a scene that took place on a British Airways flight between Johannesburg, South Africa & London.
A white woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a
black man.

Very disturbed by this, she called the air hostess. “You
obviously do not see it then?” she asked. “You placed me next to a black man. I did not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat.”


“Be calm please,” the hostess replied.
“Almost all the places on this flight are taken. I will go to
see if another place is available.”

The hostess went away & then came back a few minutes later.

“Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in Economy Class.

I spoke to the captain & he informed me that there is also
no seat in Business Class. All the same, we still have one place in First Class.”

Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued.
“It is unusual for our company to permit someone from Economy Class to sit in First Class. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting.”

She turned to the black guy & said:

 “Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First Class.”

At that moment, the other passengers, who’d been shocked by what they had just witnessed, stood up & applauded.

This is a true story that happened recently.
