When bad weather forced a London-bound Virgin flight to reroute from Heathrow Airport to Stansted, passengers had to wait three hours on the tarmac before they could disembark. A select group did, however, get to leave the plane after about an hour. No, they weren't disabled, sick or parents with small, noisy children. The group making an early exit consisted of once-popular singer Madonna and her entourage of about 15 people.
Other passengers on the New York-London flight were indignant especially the other first class fliers, who thought they were entitled to special treatment. As reported by the Daily Mail:
According to fellow passengers in upper class, Madonna and her entourage were allowed off first and whisked away by bus to the terminal two hours before everyone else. But not before she handed out some impromptu in-flight entertainment.Virgin issued a statement saying it was common for "business and first-class passengers to disembark first." In this case, though, there was apparently at least one more class of passenger. "Madonna was taken off the plane way before the rest of the first-class people," a member of the normally privileged upper classes told the Daily Mail. "We were all grumbling about it."
Says one passenger: "It was bad enough having to wait, but then she started doing her yoga in the aisles.
"After about an hour, a bus came along and took her and her party of about 15 off the plane. It seemed a little unfair it's not like she is the President or anything. The rest of us all had to wait for another two hours."
So many lines, so little time.
Madonna and virgin in the same sentence?
Some are more equal than others.
There’s first class and FIRST first-class.
She’s like a Virgin....touched for the 5,369th time.
Liberals like feudalism. They want to live in a world where they are treated as lords, and offered respect and position due to their deep feelings for the plight of the common man. Meanwhile, they see no problem in having the common man step aside and wait while his betters pass on through.
Please tell me she didn’t do Yoga Bare.
OMG! I can’t imagine having to stay on a plane for 3 hours for nothing. I’d have to fake a heart attack or something. Come to think of it, I probably wouldn’t be faking.
She started doing that, got whisked off the plane, and folks COMPLAIN about it?
Bloody lot of whiners.
Although heart attacks are serious I find your comment funny. hehehe
Anywho.... Merry Christmas to you Ditter from Humble.
Not that she got off the plane, but because THEY couldn’t get off the plane too.
Merry Christmas to you too, from Houston. :)
B.O... Where have I seen those initial before?
