British Airways – death of a stowawayBack to Forum
Anonymous19 Jun 2015
It appears that two gentlemen managed to stowaway on board a BA service last night from JNB.
Sadly this extraordinary venture has ended in tragedy for one of them and the other is in a London hospital.
With all the airport security in place it does beg the question of how this happened with not one but two people involved. Perhaps they could have just as easily been in the passenger cabin with explosives. BA have some questions to answer.19 Jun 2015
It just amazes me that anybody could survive that journey. No air, incredibly cold, dark and cramped. I am aware of many trying it before, indeed at one point in the 1980’s the B&Q carpark on the Heathrow flight path saw three dead bodies in one week.19 Jun 2015
I think you will find its the airport authorities in JNB who have those questions to answer not the carrier, who pays for these to be done for them
Also, if it was in the cabin, then they would prob of not made it with explosives… As they go through several X-ray and security… To my knowledge there and not many X-ray machines or procedures whilst jumping a fence.22 Jun 2015
