Naomi Campbell has been banned from flying with British Airways.
The British supermodel - who was removed from a plane after abusing cabin crew and spitting in a policeman's face last week - has reportedly been told she is no longer welcome as a customer of the airline.
A British Airways source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Banning her will send out a worldwide signal that such behaviour is totally unacceptable. The decision was not taken lightly. She is a valued customer. But her behaviour was absolutely shocking. She abused our staff and the police."
Naomi, however, is convinced she can persuade the airline to reverse their decision.
Her spokeswoman said: "Naomi has been flying with British Airways for nearly 30 years and has been a good customer. She hopes this can be resolved amicably."
The 38-year-old beauty was arrested last Thursday (03.04.08) after she reportedly branded police officers "a**holes" and air crew "bloody fools" because a piece of her luggage had gone astray at London's Heathrow Airport.
She was handcuffed and removed from the plane kicking and screaming, "Get off me! Don't touch me!"
Naomi, who was held in a London police station for seven hours before being released on bail, has not been charged over the incident.
