“And The First Shall Be Last...”

This is a true story is about an incident which took place during a BA flight from Johannesburg to London:

A white woman, about 50 years old, took her seat next to a black man. Outraged, she called the Stewardess. The Stewardess: “ How may I help you, madam?”

The Woman: “Donít you see it? You have placed me next to a black man. I will not put up with being next to such a disgusting individual. Please give me another seat!”

The Stewardess: “Please keep calm, practically every seat on the plane has been taken. I will check to see if there is still one available.”

The Stewardess moved away and returned a few minutes later:

“Madam, just as I thought, there is not a single seat left in the Economy Class. I have spoken to the Supervisor who has confirmed that there are no more available. However, we still have one seat vacant in the First Class.”

Before the white woman had a chance to say a word the Stewardess went on: “It is quite exceptional for our airline to allow someone to transfer to a seat in the First Class, even if they have a seat in the economy Class. However, under the circumstances, the Supervisor considers that it would be a scandal to compel someone to sit next to such a disgusting individual...”

The Stewardess then turned to the black man and said: “So, if you wish, you may bring your hand luggage along because there is a seat waiting for you in the First Class”

All the passengers, who had been present and in shock during this drama, rose to their feet and applauded...
