Heather Mills Not Special Enough for British Airways

Posted October 9, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Milkbottle_4 Poor old Heather Mills. The past couple of years haven’t been too good to her, have they? Nobody seems to like her much—at least that’s what The Sun would like everyone to believe. All that talk about drinking rats’ milk probably hasn’t helped her image much either.

And last week, even British Airways went sour on her. The world’s most infamous one-legged model tried to request a free upgrade for her transatlantic flight, but was turned down by airline staff. Perhaps they were just ardent fans of her ex-husband Sir Paul McCartney? She was due to fly to New York to appear at a charity vegan barbeque.

The BA check-in staff told her she would have to pay the £1,700 surcharge for the privilege of upgrading to their Club World cabin, but Lady Mucca refused to stump up the cash. One wonders why she decided not to pay up for the comforts of business class, though. The former Beatle’s ex-wife was awarded nearly £25 million as part of her divorce settlement from Sir Paul, so it’s not like she was strapped for money. Perhaps someone had told her they didn't serve rats’ milk in the Club World cabins.
