David Beckham annoyed by British Airways

DAVID Beckham has threatened to stop flying with British Airways because star struck hostesses won't stop staring at him.

According to The Sun, the final straw for Beckham came when a stewardess woke him up with a torch so she could take a photo of him.

“David will sign autographs and pose for pictures until the cows come home. He is well known for going the extra mile for fans," a source told The Sun.

“Nevertheless it was a bit disconcerting watching young BA crew members queuing down the aisle for autographs during flights.

“His privacy must be respected, and being startled as he rested during a flight was the final straw.”

British Airways has reminded all staff of their policies on privacy following the incident.

A spokeswoman confirmed there was an incident, and the airline had apologised: “We have a very good relationship with David Beckham.”

Same. Saw that sentence and went "whelp, I'm done".

I've been meaning to tell you this, but I love your icon sfm. Agger is one of my favorites and him doing that was just perfection to me.

Awww Thanks, bb.

Yeeeees! Agger is my heart and soul. When Brodge said that everyone has a price and FSG was threatening to sell in him the summer, I was fucking gutted. I'm sooooo glad we kept him. The tattoo sent me over the edge with emotions. Agger is too perfect. ;_;

Trust me. I could handle Torres leaving way better than had Agger left, he just holds such a special place in my heart. And the GIF is perfection.

IA x100000

Torres leaving just upset me at first. I knew he was going to leave--I think many of us did--so I was fine with him leaving in the summer to some club outside of England. But I was super disappointed when he tried to slip out during the winter window. That was cowardly. Then I was angry that he was fine with going to Chelsea. Ultimately it pissed me off when he started talking trash about LFC.

Agger leaving would have absolutely destroyed me because he did NOT want to leave. Had he been forced out, it would have been completely unfair and unjustified. I would have never forgiven FSG or Brodge.

Sorry about my tl;dr-ing. I just have a lot of Agger feels and rarely get to talk about LFC on LJ (outside of LFCReds, of course). hahaha

No its all good. You literally wrote exactly what I was thinking. Had torres gone to anywhere else other than another EPL team things would have been a lot better. Well maybe not Barcelona, I would have to dislike him on default.

I go on LFC reds but hardly ever comment.
xevochic 21st-Nov-2012 06:01 am (UTC)
hahaha As a Red, I would have allowed even Barca...but the Madridista in me would have dragged his ass even more than I do now.

It's okay, bb, barely anyone comments on LFCReds anymore. lol

You actually have flawless taste in soccer teams.

Ya, it really is dead.

idk, the sun has no responsability and is extremely shady but they don't have the habit of inventing things out of thin air. especially something as innocuous as this. they're actually a pretty OK source compared to many others (radar, star mag/intouch, etc).
