British Airways are reportedly investigating after footage emerged appearing to show an air stewardess in a shocking racist rant. The Snapchat video shows a woman, dressed in a BA uniform, making derogatory comments about passengers on a flight to Nigeria. The clip was apparently filmed in the woman’s car as she drove to work ahead of a flight from London Heathrow to Abuja on Friday night.
It was posted on Snapchat and circulated among shocked BA staff, who reported it to bosses, MailOnline reported. In the one-minute clip, which was captioned: “I can’t cope with this flight,” the blonde woman claims “all Nigerians are going to be asking for f****** upgrades”. The unidentified woman appears to insinuate male Nigerian passengers would need extra leg room because of the size of their penises.
Complaining about the upcoming flight, the woman says: “Alright, so all of yous 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 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.”
British Airways confirmed that they are investigating the footage.
In a statement, the airline said: “We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways. We are investigating this video.”
