"London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people."

The magazine allegedly states that London is generally a safe place, save for areas that are highly populated by "Indians, Pakistanis and black people". The magazine further advises people not to go out alone, and for women to have someone with them while travelling.

After the screenshot hit the virtual airwaves, several people have been appalled by the guidelines in the international airline's magazine.
