( CM ) - Supermodel NAOMI CAMPBELL is refusing to set foot on another British Airways plane after she was arrested for arguing with flight staff in London.
Campbell allegedly assaulted a police officer during a luggage row on 3 April (08), and was escorted off the plane in handcuffs.
Despite news she had been banned from BA flights after the controversy, Campbell claims company officials have since spoke to her directly, "begging" her to fly with them in the future.
Campbell eventually made it to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - her destination, where she has been talking to the local media about boycotting BA.
She says, "Someone from BA called me and asked that I return to fly with them, but this will not occur so early. They didn't find my bag - said it wasn't in the system - and there was a complete disrespect for the passengers.
"I am not speaking for myself. I am speaking for all those who have been disrespected."
A representative for British Airways says, "We have not confirmed or denied that any passenger has been banned."
