Naomi Campbell blames 9/11 for arrest

SupermodeL Naomi Campbell has blamed her spat with British Airways (BA) on the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The catwalk star was escorted off a BA plane and taken into custody at Heathrow Airport in April (08) after spitting at a police officer during a row over her luggage.

She was subsequently sentenced to community service in London after admitting to the incident, but maintains she was provoked after being called a racial slur.

And now Campbell, who had been a loyal BA customer until the fracas, insists she will never step on board another BA plane - claiming the 2001 terrorist attacks in America have changed air travel forever.

She says, "I think after 9/11 you can't say anything anymore on a plane. I've flown British Airways for years, since I was a child. The stewardesses will tell you that I would get on a plane, put on the blanket and go to sleep.

"I'll never fly that airline again, but nothing's really lost. I did get my luggage. I was reunited with my YSL (Yves Saint Laurent), and everything was cool."
