“I’m not saying I deserve special treatment…”

2. The 17-year-old was unhappy at being denied access to the BA business lounge due to her age.

6. She received support from some of her followers on Twitter, including singer Ed Sheeran.

Ah British airways. You failed again.

— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran)

7. British Airways later replied, explaining the company’s policy.

@Maisie_Williams Hi Maisie. We're sorry if you were disappointed, lounge guests must be 18 or older. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

— British Airways (@British_Airways)

8. But Williams was still not impressed.

Yes.. @British_Airways fully understand that, my question is why? Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense.

— Maisie Williams (@Maisie_Williams)

9. And appeared to switch allegiance after Virgin Atlantic stepped in and said she could visit its lounge.

“@VirginAtlantic: @PVBuk we can accept customers from 16-18, but obviously the 16 and 17 year olds can't drink” The logical answer..

— Maisie Williams (@Maisie_Williams)

Her tweets received hundreds of retweets on Sunday but that was nothing compared to the message she posted on Monday…

11. “Removing jewellery and cutting off festival bands can only mean one thing.. #GoT5”

#GoT5!!!!
