British Airway

Postby Zack555 » Sat, 20 Sep 2008 8:48 am

This scene 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 not usual 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.'



The Hostess 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. If you are against racism, please send this to all your friends; please do not delete it without sending it to at least 1person.



WELL DONE, British Airways!!
