  • Naomi Campbell receives British Airways ban

    British Airways have decided to come down hard on Naomi Campbell for her outburst on one of their planes last week – and have banned her from flying with them again.

    The supermodel was arrested and removed from an LA-bound plane last Thursday after she allegedly spat at a policeman and screamed abuse at staff when told one of her bags had not made it on to the flight.

    The 37-year-old’s spokeswoman said: ‘Naomi has been flying with BA for nearly 30 years and has been a good customer. She hopes this can be resolved amicably.’

    But the company is reportedly sticking to its decision. One source explained: ‘Banning her will send out a worldwide signal that such behaviour is totally unacceptable.

    ‘The decision was not taken lightly. She is a valued customer. But it is unthinkable for BA to talk about the safety of staff and passengers being our priority, then let her off.

    He added: ‘Her behaviour was absolutely shocking. She abused our staff and police.’

    Naomi was not charged but released on police bail until May over the incident at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 last week.
