Tinie Tempah slams British Airways for ‘f****** disgusting’ plane seat – The Sun

TINIE Tempah has hit out at British Airways for the state of his "disgusting" seat on a recent flight.

The rapper filmed the area around his seat and a stained pillow he was given by the airline, before sharing it with his fans on social media.

In the first video the star shows off the side of his seat that is covered in crumbs, asking: "I'm wiping down this aircraft now 'cos of coronavirus but quick question though – BA why are your planes always so dirty?

"What's this about? How can mans spend so much money on a ticket and the seats are always so dirty."

Tinie, whose real name is  Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu Jr, then shared a second clip online that showed his pillow covered in what appeared to be red wine stains.

He added: "Look at this man. It's f****** nasty. Sort it out BA man."

A BA spokesperson told Sun Online Travel: "Our customers rightly expect our aircraft to be clean and we insist on very high standards of cleanliness.

"Our long-haul aircraft receive a thorough clean after every flight. This includes the cleaning of seats, seat pockets, tray tables, galleys, toilets, floors and the aircraft interior generally."

​The star's tweet was met with sympathetic replies from fans.

One person said: "That's bad! At a time like this one would hope cleanliness is on the extra," while another added, "That is disgusting."

This isn't the first time that Tinie has lost his temper with British Airways.

In 2011, The Sun reported that he flew with the airline from Switzerland to play the Glastonbury, but his gear stayed in Zurich.

He tweeted at the time: “Bloody B.A have ended up leaving Half Our Glasto Equipment in Zurich! Soo P****d Right now. This aint the 1st time! Executive club my a**e!!”

The South London star had been in Switzerland for the Touch The Air open air concert.

British Airways was the subject of several complaints on Twitter this morning, after a website glitch left customers complaining that they are unable to check in online or even access their bookings.

Travellers have been venting their frustration on social media this morning, with some people finding that their flight details had completely vanished.

The technical issues come as the airline cancels a fresh round of flights to Italy due to the spread of Covid-19.

BA has scrapped 36 flights to the north of the country, mainly to Milan and Venice, as the Italian government quarantines 16 million and the UK Foreign Office advises against "all but essential travel" to the worst-hit regions.
