Virgin passenger barred for ironic remark to pilot
A Virgin Atlantic captain has been reported to the authorities for barring a passenger who made an ironic comment when the pilot turned up late. |
By 7.20am all the passengers were assembled in the departure lounge but no flight or cabin crew had appeared.
The first of the flight attendants entered the lounge 10 minutes later - to be met by a round of mocking applause.
Another 15 minutes elapsed before the substitute pilot, Capt Simon Crook, approached the gate.
As he walked through the lounge, there was renewed clapping from about six passengers including Mr Warshaw, who said: "Well done."
