Barrister v British Airways after on-board feud


Barrister wages war on British Airways after on-board row led to him being escorted from a flight by police


A barrister has waged war on British Airways after an on-board row led to him being escorted from a flight by police. 

Cabin crew on a BA flight forced Charles Banner QC and his family to leave after a heated argument over his children’s nanny being downgraded from business class. 

Banner said that flight attendants were ‘gas lighting’ his family and ‘incredibly rude’ when his nanny was prevented from joining him in business class to help look after his children. 

Row: Cabin crew on a BA flight forced Charles Banner QC and his family to leave after a heated argument over his children’s nanny being downgraded from business class

It is claimed the crew did not allow the nanny to use a spare seat next in his row. 

The spat led to the lawyer informing cabin crew that he had lodged a complaint to BA’s hierarchy, following which the pilot was asked not to fly any of Banner’s family and police were called. 

Banner described the situation as a ‘gross over-reaction and a ‘very upsetting event’. 

He said he has received an apology and a full refund, although the possibility of further legal action still looms. 

BA said: ‘We do not tolerate disruptive behaviour.’
