Following my article about the British Airways Business Class Bed Bug infestation, on a flight from Ghana back to London, Ghana’s Minister of Aviation has joined in, voicing her disgust on behalf of BA’s Ghanaian passengers.

Aviation Minister, Cecilia Dapaah slams officials of British Airways over poor treatment of Ghanaian passengers.

She says that British Airways has been able to treat its Ghanaian passengers poorly because it has enjoyed direct flights from Ghana to the UK. She said the airline issued a release explaining that “the presence of bed bugs is an issue faced occasionally by hotels and airlines all over the world”. But the angry Minister said that Ghanaian passengers will no longer tolerate this bad treatment.

“They should make sure all flights that are deemed to come to Ghana are all fumigated. If we ever see one bedbug or any untoward thing on their flight, we will take a drastic action. It should not have happened in the first place, and it should never happen again,” she said.

I am in agreement. There is no excuse for bed bugs in Business or Economy Class. This is just another example of British Airways cost-cutting going a step too far. Surely it is not too much to ask for a plane to be clean and free of infestations?
