Brutish Airways, through journalist and apparent spokesman, Ademola Adedoyin, issued a statement today -
"We regret the upset that the events onboard the BA75 to Lagos on March 27 have caused in Nigeria. We have made it clear that the decision to offload passengers was made in consultation with and on the advice of the UK police, and the sole aim of this decision was to ensure the safety of our passengers, aircraft and crew.I could say a lot about this 'regretful' statement from the Brutes, but I leave you to tell me if the above qualifies as an apology.
“Offloading passengers is not a decision that is taken lightly and is a rare occurrence. However, the disturbance on board the BA75 service to Lagos on Thursday, March 27, was a very serious incident, which required the presence of 20 uniformed police officers to regain control of the situation.”
