Tinie Tempah fumes over ‘dirty’ British Airways plane in videos from his seat

Tinie Tempah has slammed British Airways on Twitter and asked the airline: "Why are your planes always so dirty?"

The Pass Out rapper fumed as he shared two videos from his seat after boarding the plane.

Addressing his 1.7million followers on the site, Tinie showed off his crumb-stained seat before revealing he'd been given a pillow with what appeared to be a red wine stain on it.

"I'm wiping down this aircraft now 'cos of coronavirus but quick question though – BA why are your planes always so dirty?" he asked in the first clip.

The musician then zoomed in on the crumbs on his seat and vented: "What's this about?"

"How can mans spend so much money on a ticket and the seats are always so dirty," he added.


This was followed up with another video from Tinie – real name Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu Jr – that showed what appeared to be a red wine stain on his pillow.

"Look at this man. It's f***ing nasty. Sort it out BA man," he said in the short clip.

"That is disgusting!!" one of Tinie's followers responded.


Another joked he should have tried a budget airline instead.

A spokesperson from British Airways responded to say that long-haul aircrafts undergo a rigorous clean after every flight.

They said in a statement: "Our customers rightly expect our aircraft to be clean and we insist on very high standards of cleanliness. Our long-haul aircraft receive a thorough clean after every flight. This includes the cleaning of seats, seat pockets, tray tables, galleys, toilets, floors and the aircraft interior generally."

British Airways also then responded to the rapper's tweets asking for more information so they could investigate his claims.

The airline hit the headlines earlier this week when it was reported two British Airways baggage handlers based at Heathrow have tested posted for Coronavirus.

A spokesperson said: "Public Health England has confirmed that two members of our staff have tested positive for the Covid-19 virus.

“The colleagues have been isolated and are recovering at home.”

A statement from Heathrow said: “The welfare of our passengers and colleagues is our top priority.
