This scene took place on a BA flight between Johannesburg and London. A
white woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a black man.
Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air Hostess.
"Madam, what is the matter?" the hostess asked.
"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
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 the economy
I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there is also no seat
inthe . All the same, we still have one place in the first
Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued, "It is not
usual for our company to permit someone from to sit in
class. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it
scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting."
She turned to the black guy, and said, "Therefore, Sir, if you would
to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in first
At that moment, the other passengers, who were shocked by what they had
just witnessed, stood up and applauded.
