BA Loses Naomi Campbell From Terminal Five

So says the Mirror on its front page. “NAOMI ‘SPAT IN COP’S FACE,” says the Sun, a little more circumspect than its red-top rival, putting the spitting in inverted commas.

The Mirror, the paper against which Campbell won a breach of confidentiality claim against, is more certain.

This is Naomi Campbell, who, as the Mirror notes, “served five days of community service and two days on an anger management course last year after pleading guilty to assaulting her maid. and in 2000 was ordered to attend anger management classes after admitting assaulting her PA with a mobile phone.”

But before we condemn her, we learn that the alleged incident occurred at HeathROW Terminal Five.

Says the Mirror: “The model has blamed her temper on resentment of her father who abandoned her as a child.”

That’s too bad. But the Sun says “CRAZED Naomi Campbell flew into a rage over ONE lost bag — after 20,000 pieces of luggage went missing at Heathrow’s trouble-hit Terminal 5.”

One lost bag is no big deal unless the one lost bag in your lost bag.

Campbell’s press agent, Celena Aponte, tells the Sun: “She arrived in plenty of time at Heathrow Terminal 5 with two bags, checked them in, and told they were take [sic] the flight. Once on the flight, she was told one bag could not be found and was missing.

“British Airways decided to resolve this by insisting she leave the flight, calling the police, and forcibly ejected her from the flight. So far as we are aware, BA has still failed to offer any explanation as to why her bag went missing at Terminal 5.”

Can this be a new policy in which if BA loses a bag it loses the passenger, too. Are there right now thousands of persons lying in a heap on the outskirts of Milan waiting to be paired with a bag and sent home?

But in case there are some nutters who can’t understand Campbell’s situation, and mistake her for a hissing, spitting loon Ms Aponte provides a sympathetic background story. She says Miss Campbell was flying to LA to attend a memorial service of the mother of fashion photographer Herb Britts.

Mrs Britts has lost her mother. Or misplaced her, as BA would have it. And what passengers at HeathRow cannot understand with that..?
