That’s some typo: British Airways magazine gives Osama Bin Laden a boarding pass

This week a photo in a staff magazine from British Airways has Osama Bin Laden flying the airline first class on October 26, 2010. The photo, which shows Osama as a  frequent flyer, appeared in an article about the airline’s mobile boarding passes. The magazine is facing the heat from the media for this blunder, and ABC News reported this statement from a British Airways spokesperson: “A mistake has been made in this internal publication and we are working to find out how this occurred.”  I would say this is some mistake. There is speculation that this typo is the work of a current or former disgruntled employee.  I guess John Doe wasn’t original enough. 

What do you think about the airline’s typo?

    That graphic designer/photographer is going to get in trouble for their joke! It’s funny but in bad taste. I’m surprised that it slipped through the editors and into the final layout.
