Win­dow Seat

Travel Daily - - News -

BUSI­NESS mag­nate Alan Sugar has been slammed by Twit­ter users for tak­ing up a cov­eted seat on a flight to Aus­tralia.

Sugar was “lucky” enough to score a seat on an Emi­rates flight to Syd­ney last week, de­spite around 30,000 Aus­tralians re­main­ing stranded in the UK (TD 17 Sep).

The me­dia per­son­al­ity was fly­ing to Aus­tralia to helm Celebrity Ap­pren­tice, and sent out a tweet about his fond­ness for Emi­rates, broad­cast­ing his ig­no­rance about the sit­u­a­tion which had been un­fold­ing.

Sugar’s tweet was blasted with an­gry replies about his “typ­i­cal tone-deaf­ness”, which is ex­actly what you’d ex­pect from some­one who em­braces the pre­fix of “Lord”.
