SEPTEMBER 26 2017-theG&BJournal -Joanne Wickenden, a British Airways (BA) stewardess who was filmed on-board making insulting and racist remarks about Nigerians has been suspended and face imminent sack after an investigation launched by the airline for the controversial footage.
BA said in a statement, that it expects the utmost professionalism from its staff when they are representing British Airways. “We are investigating this video.”
The 5ft 11in, 23 year air hostess was caught on the video last Friday ridiculing the size of private part of Nigerian Men, and how frequently Nigerian passengers make demands on food, (beef), drinks and how they demand upgrades for leg rooms.
“’All Nigerians are going to be asking for f****** upgrades,’’ she said in the lurid and offensive video. In the one-minute clip she also revealed how she was going to deal with passengers on the six-hour flight.
She said: ‘Alright, 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 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’.
