A video posted by a disgruntled British Airways flyer has gone viral for capturing the "disgusting" conditions of his pricey first class seat.
In four days, a short 30-second clip posted by British TV presenter Owen Thomas has garnered more than 871,600 hits on YouTube, showing viewers "...what first class in BA is really like."
"It is absolutely filthy," says a livid Thomas in the clip. "...You see the stains down here."
"It's when you open your seat that the real horror begins. This is first class. This is British Airways first class. It's disgusting."
According to his brief YouTube description, the offending flying conditions were suffered during a flight from London to St. Lucia on January 17.
Thomas is all the more livid given that he and his travel companion saved and scrimped in order to fly first class, he said.
Return flights to St. Lucia in first class start from about $4,100 USD return.
A few days later, another disgruntled flyer who claims to have taken the same route back in October posted a photo showing similar flying conditions.
