People try to sneak into first class all the time. There are a few different approaches:
The "do you know who I am approach" in which the individual tries to impress the flight attendant with how important they are in the hopes of getting into first class. Success rating: 1.
The "special needs" approach in which the passenger asserts some special needs (whether real, or imaginary) and needs a little extra room or space. Success rating: 4.
The "bribery" approach where the passenger brings goodies to the flight attendants. Dven if there is no room in first class, this technique will likely get you a free drink. Success rating: 10.
And now, from London, we have a new technique: storming the VIP Lounge. This technique just isn't going to meet with much success, as evidenced by the Snoop Dogg/British Airways debacle.
Three of the traveling group had first class tickets, but apparently felt that the remaining members of the group should join them in the VIP lounge. While we must always be a little leery of celebrity gossip details, it appears that this much is known:
- Snoop Dogg and his entourage have been banned for life from British Airways.
- Seven police officers were injured in the fray.
- Snoop Dogg, along with five others, were arrested.
- There was alcohol involved.
Say no more.
