This is, admittedly, taken from the internal BA 'Intranet'.
(Surprised Britair hasn't posted it so far!)
It concerns an attempted stunt that went wrong for Easy Jet fat-bloke Stelios Haji-Ioannou at an industry award ceremony.
Stelios had apparently placed some of his employees as 'low-cost police' at the award ceremony to handcuff BA CEO Rod Eddington with plastic cuffs, as some sort of protest about some imagined BA 'underhand' methods.
Apparently there was some sort of half-cocked attempt to do this, (if it had succeeded surely it would have made the news), half-hearted because BA won seven awards, Easy Jet, nothing.
But if anyone has some details about this, I'd be interested to hear about it.
BA, (to the irritation of many of it's workers), does not respond to the admittedly playground insults of Easy Jet and Ryanair, (even despite sexist comments by Easy Jet about BA stewardesses in a poster a few years back). Nor the often 'some and mirrors' aspect to their marketing.
But in a statement, the airline could not contain it's glee this time;
Easy Jet is obviously just upset that BA won the most prestigious awards at the Business Traveler ceremony.
BA was voted best airline, best first class, best business class, best shorthaul flights, best frequent flyer programme, best cabin staff and most innovative airline.
Easy Jet did not even win the best low cost airline.
BA is only guilty of offering customers superb value for money, an excellent product at all year round prices, having the best shorthaul network and using the main airports which customers wish to use.
(Bit of a bright spot, which is needed because the world situation means probably more bad news for BA tomorrow).
