Award winning music duo "Black Motion", are not happy with British Airways and seeking legal advice after they were allegedly escorted by police for refusing to be seated in economy on Monday 4 December 2017. The two Black motion members, Bogani Mohosana and Thabo Mabogwane were entitially booked into business class but a British airways hostess approached the two and asked them to move to economy as a white women's seat was broken and she needed to be moved.

The two musicians, "Mabogwane and Mohosana" questioned why they were singled out to move to economy over other passengers in business class and were apparently told their tickets were "worth less."

"The fact is that there were only two black people in business class and they were asked to move. When they asked why they were being chosen‚ they (the air hostess) told them their ticket was cheaper. We asked them why they were not accommodating us and they said they were doing so by putting us in economy‚" said Black Motion's road manager‚ Nicky Seema‚ who was also on the flight.
