Maisie Williams criticises British Airways for not letting her in the business class lounge


Maisie Williams has adopted some Arya Stark-like attitude towards British Airways after being refused entry to their business class lounge.

The Game Of Thrones star took to Twitter to criticise the airline’s policy of not allowing lone under-18 business class travellers into the premium area.

Maisie, 17, tweeted: ‘Denied from the business lounge once again for being under 18 and without an adult... @British_Airways sort your s**t out.’


'I'm not saying I deserve special treatment,' Williams continued.

'Just saying if 16-18 yr olds are grown up enough to travel 5,400 miles around the world I'm sure we can handle sitting quietly in the damn lounge.’

British Airways responded: ‘Hi Maisie. We're sorry if you were disappointed, lounge guests must be 18 or older. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

The reply was not enough for Maisie: ‘Yes.. @British_Airways fully understand that, my question is why? Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense.’

British Airways then explained it was because the business class lounges offer a self-service complimentary bar stocked with alcohol which is not monitored by staff round the clock.

The young actress will soon be flying off to film the next series of Game Of Thrones, where Arya was last seen sailing off into the distance after leaving The Hound for dead.
