IT consultant Peter Nelson arrives at Isleworth Crown Court in West London today

An IT consultant racially ill-treated a British Airways stewardess and asked to be served by a "white girl," a court heard.

Triple father Peter Nelson, 46, got angry after being woken up by Sima Patel-Pryke on June 2 when he was in business class on an 11.5-hour BA flight from Heathrow to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, juries were told last year.

Nelson, who lives in a five-bed, single-family home in Ascot, Berkshire, said, "You Asians think you're better than us, I don't want to be served by you, I've paid your wages since." 20 years. & # 39;

Isleworth Crown Court heard that Nelson had moved the stewardess to tears after shouting "very loudly" at her and another cabin crew member, Sam Buchanan, in the jet galley.

Nelson, who has been an external advisor to the British pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline for almost 20 years, allegedly "targeted" Ms. Patel-Pryke before he could be arrested.

The cabin crew had a restraint set ready for him, the jury said.

Michael Tanney, who is indicting, said: "It is no mere nonsense to say that he bullied and scolded and screamed.

"At some point, after continuing to aim, she starts to pull away in terror and becomes whiny."

Referring to Mr. Buchanan's evidence, he said: “Nelson would later only request services from the white member of the (crew).

He accused the accused of shouting very loudly to exacerbate the threat he posed. Everyone deliberately says the crown. At this point, reference was made to the white girl. & # 39;

Nelson got angry after being woken up by Sima Patel-Pryke when he was flying in business class on an eleven and a half hour BA flight from Heathrow to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Mr. Tanney added: "It is not a minor complaint that you have behaved badly on an airplane at 3,000 feet if a restraint set has been completed."

Mr. Tanney said Nelson's claims that he had never used "racist language" were a "conspiracy theory".

Lauren Sales, who defended herself, said, “Mr. Nelson accepts that he was tired, irritable, and grumpy.

 € œHe said he didnâ € ™ t want someone to serve him, he wanted another oneâ € ”words that you and I might not speak to the cabin crew, but certainly not racist.

"The prosecutor told Mr. Nelson:" "Oh, you were drunk – that's why you acted like that," but we know that none of the prosecutor's witnesses said Mr. Nelson was confused. They said he had the juicy breath.

"It wasn't a white man, it was, as Mr. Nelson explained, he just wanted to be served by her."

Nelson denies a number of racially abusive in-flight abuses on June 2 last year.

The process continues.
