A little humour - Thanks to British Airways!

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 and then came back a few minutes later.

'Madam,just as I thought, there are no other available seats in Economy


I spoke to the captain and 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.'

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.

WELL DONE, British Airways
