BA Whistleblower Nick Singh claims that the company did not handle incidents properly, including a BA pilot who told him & # 39; a dirty black P *** & # 39; calls
A former British Airways first-class steward challenges the airline after claiming to have suffered racism for years.
Nick Singh claims that the company did not handle incidents properly, including a BA pilot who told him & # 39; a dirty black P *** & # 39; calls.
He also claims that, although he was born in England, a white steward told him to "go back to your own country."
The father of a person who claims racial discrimination at a labor court says he claims that racism & # 39; usual & # 39; is for senior managers, including the chief executive, Alex Cruz.
Last week, Mr. Cruz showed the queen around BA's headquarters at Heathrow airport to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the national flag. Mr. Singh, 53, claims that he had offered £ 25,000 to BA last year and that, if he did not agree, he fired the airline. BA is expected to strongly deny all its claims.
He told the Daily Mail yesterday: “They fired me four days before Christmas. They offered me money to settle for, but I want the public to know what's going on. I'm sick of it. "Mr. Singh claims:

- Bosses took his warnings about a & # 39; white racist & # 39; BA pilot who reportedly gave him a & # 39; dirty black P *** & # 39; mentioned, not serious;
- Mr. Singh's Audi car was destroyed in the BA parking garage with & # 39; P *** & # 39; scribbled over the hood;
- A white steward who told him to go back to your own country & # 39; and called him a & # 39; dirty black P *** b ****** & # 39; was forced to write an apology & # 39; about what looked like a crumpled piece of toilet paper & # 39 ;;
- One of his managers shared a social media message by the extreme right-wing group of Great Britain, the race hate, although she later insisted that it was a coincidence.
British Airways said it could not comment on the details of the case due to ongoing legal proceedings
Mr. Singh's decision to speak out comes after BA suspended five pilots for alleged racism earlier this year, following claims from a Boeing 777 captain, Manish Patel, whom he had endured & # 39; P ** * kid & # 39; and & # 39; chai wallah & # 39; to be called. All five have since been restored.
Mr. Singh has been a flight attendant for three decades. He said he became a Virgin Atlantic & # 39; s first Anglo-Indian flight attendant in 1990. He switched to BA in 1997.
But he was outraged in October when British Airways organized a campaign to drum Black History Month. & # 39; I couldn't believe it when they launched this campaign and said they are proud to celebrate ethnic minorities & he said.
& # 39; I have known shocking racist abuse for years and they have never got a grip on it & # 39 ;.
Mr. Singh also claims that, despite his birth in England, a white steward told him that he had to return to his own country.
In January last year, Mr. Singh, from Hounslow, West London, wrote Willie Walsh, the boss of BA & # 39; s owner IAG, in the Cruz newspaper, claiming that racism & # 39; is common in my experience & # 39 ;. He then wrote to Amy James, head of global cabin crew, who claimed that his claims had not been properly resolved.
British Airways said it could not comment on the details of the case due to ongoing legal proceedings. But a spokesperson said: “British Airways is a global company operating in more than 75 countries and racism is not tolerated.
& # 39; We encourage a diverse and inclusive culture and expect all of our colleagues to treat each other with dignity and respect. & # 39;
