Air China has been receiving flak for giving out racist ‘tips’ to its passengers. The Airline apparently was dispensing advises to its passengers and ‘warned’ them about the areas dominated by Pakistanis, Indians and black people population of London.
A feature that was published in an in-flight magazine went viral when it caught the eye of a journalist from CNN in the same flight.
Haze Fan,a Producer was shocked to read the feature in the magazine called ‘Wings of China’. She expressed her bafflement on the same by tweeting the picture and also went on to tag the Mayor of London.

The piece read ‘London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people. We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling.’
The racist content was handed out as guidelines to travelers bound to the city of London.
The Airlines however issued a statement later saying that they do not endorse any views expressed in the magazine. Wings of China is only of the 100 different magazines to be distributed on the planes. They have further demanded response from the editorial team of the magazine.
