    A source told MailOnline that the video - which was captioned 'I can't cope with this flight' - was circulated among 'horrified' BA cabin crew who are 'very concerned'.

    Another shocked staff member said BA should apologise to its Nigerian passengers.   

    In the expletive-filled footage, Ms Wickenden said: 'All Nigerians are going to be asking for f****** upgrades' - after claiming the men would need more leg room in an apparent joke about the size of their privates.

    During the one-minute clip she also revealed how she was going to deal with passengers on the six-hour flight. 
    She said: 'Alright, so all of yous are there getting ready for your Friday night, getting in the pre-drinks, you know, as you do.   'And I'm here, getting ready to go to work, put on a yellow life jacket, point out the exits, hand out chicken or beef, what sort of Friday night is this for me
    'The upside is I'm going to Nigeria and there's gonna be bare B**, I'm joking, I'm joking

    All the Nigerians are gonna be there like 'gimme Coca Cola, gimme me beef, why you have no beef left? I want beef.'

    'And I'm just gonna be there like, 'Sorry sir, we ran out of beef'.  'All the Nigerians are gonna be there asking for f****** upgrades because they haven't got enough leg room because their B**s are in their way. Big d**** like this swinging from side to side.'

    An airline source told MailOnline: 'My friend was horrified. BA has a culture of dealing with things like this internally, she passed it to me because she was concerned that nothing was done.'
