Det finns som vi alla vet en hel del berättelser av kedjebrevskaraktär på nätet. Jag brukar inte vilja ta för mycket i dem. Men den här berättar onekligen något viktigt om den nu är så sann som den påstår. Annars i alla fall en bra dramaturgi med en tydlig poäng.

This took place on a BA (British Airways) 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 wish 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 and then came back a few minutes later.
”Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in the economy class. I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there is also no seat in the business class. All the same, we still have one place in the first class.”
Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued:
”It is not usual for Our company to permit someone from the economy class to sit in the first class. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so
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 class.”
At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had
just witnessed stood up and applauded.
This is a true story. If you are against racism, please send this message
to all your friends; please do not delete it without sending it to at
least one person.

  1. Jag kontaktade newsdesken på British Airways i Storbritannien och frågade om de kände till berättelsen och om de i så fall kunde verifiera om den också var sann.
    Här är svaret jag fick:
    This is certainly a story that has done the rounds and it probably has an element of truth about it but without knowing the date or the flight number, we can’t verify it.
    Alltså på sätt och vis en corporate story som lever sitt eget liv och som BA förmodligen inte har något emot.
