This is a true story.
The following scene took place on a flight between Johannesburg and London:
A White woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a Black man. Disturbed by this horror, she called the flight attendant.
"Madam, what is the matter?" the Hostess asked. "You obviously do not see it, then." she retorted. "You placed me next to a Black man. I do not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat."
"Be calm please,” the Hostess replied. "Almost all of the seats on this flight are taken. I will go to see if another seat 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 are no seats in the Business Class, either. But, we do still have one First Class seat left."
Before the woman could say anything, the Hostess continued: "It is not usual for our company to upgrade someone from Economy Class to First class; however, given the circumstances, the Captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting."
She turned to the Black guy, 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.
