Not BA but perhaps the ultimate DYKWIA incident....although she didn't mention any FF status...

Quite some time ago flying AA during disembarkation I was almost knocked in the face by a guy with a backpack as he slung it over his shoulder. He should have known better given his AA EXP tag had a 28MM indicator on it. Unfortunately he was too busy trying to impress the young ladies in front of him about the airlines he'd flown lately to notice his amateur mistake. My reaction:

(AA used to count all miles earned towards lifetime status so whilst he hadn't flown 28 million miles he should have better backpack technique)
