British Airways magazine shows Osama Bin Laden is frequent flyer

In what must be a case of "bored Art Director", British Airways company magazine showed off their newfangled mobile ticketing service... with a ticket made out to "Osama Bin Laden". Yep.

People noticed, and soon a British Airways spokesperson was on ABC news apologizing and said "A mistake has been made in this internal publication and we are working to find out how this occurred". That AD is like so fired, y'all.
