Shocking moment cancer sufferer Kwame Bantu, 65, is thrown off a British Airways Flight to Jamaica over 'upgrade'

The 65-year-old says he was forcibly restrained by cabin crew after he tried to move to business class to stretch his legs
This is the dramatic moment a British cancer and diabetes sufferer was thrown off a BA Flight by police after trying to stretch his legs in business class.

Kwame Bantu, 65, was an hour into the 14-hour Flight to visit family in Jamaica when he began to feel dizzy and saw his leg swelling, MailOnline reports.

He then tried to move into business class, where he says he was 'ambushed' by six members of staff who tied him up by his hands and feet before allegedly dragging him back to his seat in economy.

"I'm going to go with you," he can be heard telling the officers.

It was initially reported that Mr Bantu, who is still stranded on the remote island of Terceira, was kicked off the jet for refusing to leave the business class section.

"I was just trying to get some room to stretch my leg," he told MailOnline. "But nobody was helping me. They refused to listen about my medical illness and what I was going through. I was treated like a slave."

The new footage also features Joy Stoney, a businesswoman from Yorkshire who was thrown off the Flight alongside Mr Bantu after trying to help him.

Trump bans Laptops from Aircrafts on Flights from the UK and Asia

Trump bans Laptops from  Aircrafts on Flights from the  UK and Asia

US  Passengers flying to the US from British Airports face being banned from taking laptops and iPads in their hand luggage.
President Trump’s administration is considering extending its ban on large electronic devices being carried in Aircraft cabins to flights from Europe, The Times reported.
Last month both the US and British governments barred passengers from bringing large electronic devices on board incoming flights from six Middle Eastern countries.

The ban, which followed concerns terrorists had perfected a new type of airline bomb, means travellers have to stow gadgets larger than a mobile phone – including laptops, tablets and kindles - in the hold.
British security chiefs have now been warned that the US is planning to extend these security restrictions to incoming flights from some parts of Europe and have been put on alert that Britain could be one of those affected.

The newspaper reported that the move could be implemented within weeks but that no final decision had yet been taken as to whether Britain would be included in the ban.
One Whitehall source is reported as saying: ‘As with everything from Trump’s America, there are conflicting reports about where, when and what.’

A US official confirmed to The Times that Britain was on the list of countries being examined for extended security restrictions.
A UK government spokesman said: ‘The safety and security of the travelling public is our highest priority. We keep aviation security under constant review.’
The US Department of Homeland Security said: ‘We will continue to evaluate the threat environment and make determinations based on that assessment but we have not made any decisions on expanding the current restrictions against large electronic devices in Aircraft cabins from selected Airports.’

Airbus has delivered the first-ever A321neo. The latest generation aircraft powered by CFM International’s LEAP-1A engines was handed over to Virgin America, an all-Airbus operator, at a ceremony in Hamburg, Germany.
“After Virgin America having been the first customer signing for the A320neo back in December 2010, we are today delighted to deliver the first A321neo to them,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus chief operating officer and president Commercial Aircraft. “With our largest, latest, most fuel efficient NEO Single Aisle aircraft we are turning a new page. The new A321neo powered by next generation CFM LEAP-1A engines guarantees new levels of efficiency and longer range to its operators, greater comfort to the flying public and less emissions and noise to the airport communities. Thanks to its cutting edge technologies it is today the most eco-sensitive Single Aisle aircraft available.”
The A320neo significantly reduces noise levels, generating only half the noise footprint compared to previous generation aircraft. Equipped with fuel-saving Sharklet wingtip devices nitrous oxide emissions are 50 percent below regulatory requirements as outlined by the Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP). In addition, the aircraft with LEAP-1A engines is proven to deliver at least a 15 percent fuel savings compared to Virgin America’s current generation aircraft, which is equivalent to cutting 5,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions with each plane every year.

We have been with Virgin America from the beginning and we are excited to launch this new chapter in that relationship,” said Gael Meheust, president and CEO of CFM International. “The LEAP-1A has done extremely well in its first months of commercial service. It is proving unprecedented levels of fuel efficiency and environmental responsibility while maintaining the level of reliability Virgin America has come to expect from CFM. We think they will be very pleased with all this engine has to offer.”

The A321neo is the largest member of the A320neo Family. It covers the entire market, from high density to long-range thin routes. There are currently over 1,300 units on order.

“We are honoured to be the first operator of this high in-demand aircraft,” said Virgin America president Peter Hunt, speaking at the ceremony attended by Virgin America teammates, Executives from Airbus, CFM and the aircraft lessor GECAS. “The new A321neo – the third member of the Airbus A320 Family to join our Virgin America fleet – will allow us to further reduce our unit costs and enable us to further reduce our carbon emissions.”

“Increased operational efficiency, productivity, and state-of-the-art technology – this winning combination makes the A321neo an attractive investment for leasing companies like GECAS who are committed to meeting customers’ operational needs while providing the latest technology and a solid return on investment,” said Alec Burger, president and CEO at GECAS. “The low operating costs and reliability of the LEAP powered A320neo Family make it a strong asset in GECAS’ portfolio.”

Virgin America currently operates a fleet of 63 Airbus A320 family aircraft comprised of A319ceo and A320ceo aircraft powered by CFM’s CFM56-5B engines.

The new A321neo will become the largest aircraft in Virgin America’s fleet, featuring 185 seats – a 24 percent higher capacity at same comfort levels than its current A320s. Inside the cabin, Virgin America flyers will continue to enjoy three custom-designed classes of service, touch-screen personal entertainment and an on-demand food and cocktail menu on every flight in addition to power outlets at every seat. The aircraft is expected to enter service on 31 May 2017 with its inaugural flight from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).
