WELL DONE, BRITISH AIRWAYS!
This scene took place on a BA flight between Johannesburg, South
Africa and London, England.
A white woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a black
Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air hostess.
"You obviously do not see it then?" she responded.
"You placed me next to a black man.
I do not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant
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 and then
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 is also no
seat in the Business Class.
All the same, we still have one place in the First Class."
Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued.
"It is not usual for our company to permit someone from the
Economy Class to sit in the First Class.
However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it would
scandalous to make someone sit next to someone sooooo
She turned to the black guy, and 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 and applauded.
This is a true story. If you are against
racism, please send this
message to all your friends; please do not delete it without

Αυτό δεν μου φαίνεται και πολύ πιστευτόAn award should go to the Virgin Airlines gate attendant in Sydney some months ago for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.
A crowded Virgin flight was cancelled after Virgin's 767s had been withdrawn from service.
A single attendant was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travellers.
Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk.
He slapped his ticket down on the counter and said,
"I HAVE to be on this flight and it HAS to be FIRST CLASS".
The attendant replied, "I'm sorry sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these people first, and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."
The passenger was unimpressed.
He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear,
"DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"
Without hesitating, the attendant smiled and grabbed her public address microphone:
"May I have your attention please, may I have your attention please," she began - her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal.
"We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Gate 14."
With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the Virgin attendant, gritted his teeth and said, "Fuck You!"
Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for that too."
