British Airways in racist comment scandal


The British Airways has started an investigation after a video emerged showing a woman wearing the company’s uniform making racist comments about Nigerian passengers, Press Association reports.

A video clip was posted online of the woman, who was dressed in BA uniform, partly captioned “I can’t cope with this flight”, in which she swears, adding “all Nigerians are going to be asking for f—— upgrades”.

During the minute-long video, the unidentified woman says passengers on the flight to Nigeria would need more leg room owing to the size of their genitals.

She added: “All right, so all of you are there getting ready for your Friday night, getting in the pre-drinks, you know, as you do.

“And I’m here, getting ready to go to work, put on a yellow life jacket, point out the exits, hand out chicken or beef, what sort of Friday night is this for me?

“The upside is I’m going to Nigeria and there’s gonna be bare BBC,” in an apparent reference to male genitals, before adding: “I’m joking, I’m joking.”

She then goes on to say: “All the Nigerians are gonna be there like ‘gimme Coca Cola, gimme me beef, why you have no beef left? I want beef.

“And I’m just gonna be there like, ‘Sorry sir, we ran out of beef’.

“All the Nigerians are gonna be there asking for f—— upgrades because they haven’t got enough leg room because their BBCs are in their way,” accompanied by suggestive gestures.

Following the release of the clip, British Airways said: “We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways. We are investigating this video.”
