Qatari royals halt British flight

BA kicked them off eventually. But they should have done it sooner.

"A British Airways flight was delayed for several hours after women members of the Qatari royal family objected to sitting next to men they did not know.

The three wives of Sheikh Badr Bin Khalifa al-Thani refused take up their seats on board Flight 563 from Milan's Linate airport to London Heathrow. "

Good for BA for standing up to them.

This incident raises an interesting question. Polygamy is illegal in the UK, if a Muslim enters Britain with more than one wife, could they be arrested?
