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

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 sodisgusting."

She turned to the Black man, and said, "Therefore, Sir, if you would
like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First

At that moment, the other passengers, who'd been shocked by what they had just witnessed, stood up & applauded.

WELL DONE, British Airways!
