Racism on British Airways

imageThe scene was on a British Airways flight between Johannesburg and London.

When boarding a white skin woman, found she was seated next to a man with black skin.

The woman immediately called the air Hostess and said  “You seated me next to a black man. I do 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. But I will go to see if another place is available.'

The Hostess came back a few minutes later. 'Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in the economy class. I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there are none in the business class. either, but we still have one place in first class.'

Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued: 'It is not usual for our company to permit someone from economy class to sit in the first  class. In circumstances however, the captain feels it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting.

' She then turned to the black guy, and said, Sir, if you would like to,  please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in first class.'

The other passengers all watching in horror,  then stood and applauded.
