Ah, a situation every traveler of color must dread: getting seated next to an old, racist white person. Ugh, I can only imagine.

In this British Airways commercial, a racist passenger on a flight from Johannesburg objects to being seated next to a black man. She asks for another seat. The flight attendant says she’ll check for another option and later returns to say there is one seat in first class and that the captain of the plane has approved a transfer to that seat because he feels that someone should not have to sit next to such an awful person. What happens next is a real table-turner. Watch to find out.
