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

Denied from the business lounge once again for being under 18 and without an adult.. @British_Airways sort your shit out.

Just saying if 16-18 yr olds are grown up enough to travel 5,400 miles around the world..

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.

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..
