The singer, called United “the worse (sic)”, adding it “should know who (its) customers are”.
It is not known at which airport the incident happened, although later in the day will.i.am indicated he was visiting singer Diddy in Washington.
In response, the airline released a statement.
We invite only customers travelling in United Global First, customers with Global Services status travelling in United BusinessFirst, and customers travelling in first class on other Star Alliance carriers to visit our Global First Lounges.
Since the customer did not meet these criteria he did not have access to the lounge. We are reaching out to the customer and appreciate his business.
What are your thoughts on the incident?
