IF YOU remember a plane catching fire in Las Vegas then you were not there, British Airways has insisted.
Amid claims a London-bound Boeing 777 suffered an engine fire on the runway, a BA spokesman deflected questions by invoking the Vegas Protocol.
He said: “Fire? If you say so. But I’m not discussing that with anybody who wasn’t in that cockpit. It’s a solemn cabin crew code, as old as time itself.”
“Maybe we were playing around with some confiscated lighters and some mezcal, maybe we weren’t. Maybe a massive fireball engulfed the plane, maybe it didn’t.
“If anything did actually happen, then whatever it was, let’s put it behind us.”
Passenger Tom Booker said: “As we were boarding, I overheard a group of people in BA uniforms asking some strippers if they wanted to see something cool.”
