A TV presenter who saved up for his 'trip of a lifetime' holiday to St Lucia has posted a video documenting the 'filthy' conditions of his first class British Airways flight. Owen Thomas, a TV anchor who has previously worked for big names such as BBC and CNN International had saved for his St Lucia trip, with Caribbean flights in BA's first class cabins starting at £2700 per person.
The 30 second long video which was uploaded on Sunday on Youtube and Twitter shows audiences sticky and grubby surfaces as well as grime, dirt and dust lodged in the foot well, with Thomas narrating over the top: "œIt is absolutely filthy; you see marks here which you can scrape off with your finger. You can see the stains down here. But it's when you open your seat, the real horror begins."
The video has since gained momentum online since its posting, in which you can hear the frustration in Thomas's voice as he goes on to highlight, "œThis is first class. This is British Airways First Class. It's disgusting."
A British Airways spokesperson apologised for not 'meeting their usual high standards' and that they are taking 'immediate action to address the issue.'
