Naomi Campbell banned from BA flights

Grounded following T5 rumpus

WSA Naomi Campbell has been spared future traumatic encounters with Heathrow's Terminal 5 since British Airways has banned her from its flights, the BBC reports.

The grounding comes after last week's solid cuffing of the battling Streatham clotheshorse "on suspicion of assaulting a police officer". She was apparently forcibly removed from a BA aircraft bound for LA for kicking up a bit of a fuss about a mislaid suitcase.

A spokewoman for Campbell said: "Naomi has been flying with BA for nearly 30 years and has been a good customer. She hopes this can be resolved amicably."

Sadly not, and a BA spokesman confirmed: "All incidents of abusive or disruptive behaviour towards fellow passengers or staff are taken extremely seriously and will not be tolerated. We deal with cases on an individual basis and take appropriate action where necessary." ®
