Video of British Airways Crew Creates Furor in Nigeria

British Airways came under fire last night after  a video  emerged of a crew making racist comments about passengers on a flight to Nigeria.

The video titled ‘I can’t cope with this flight’ – was circulated among BA cabin crew.

The unidentified woman dressed in a British Airways uniform, filmed herself as she was about to fly from London Heathrow to Abuja on Friday.

“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 B**, I’m joking, I’m joking.”

“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 B**s are in their way. Big d**** like this swinging from side to side.”

This is not the first time the airline sparked outrage over racial comments by staff.

A BA-verified twitter account called an angry customer a “g**k” and told to him to “f*** off back to your own country”.In response to the customers tweet about the cancellation of his flight, years ago.

British Airways said it has launched an investigation over the offensive video.
