(Newser) – A better punishment might have been a lifetime sentence to coach: Supermodel Naomi Campbell, who was hauled off a British Airways flight last week and arrested for spitting on a Heathrow Airport officer in a row over an overweight suitcase, has been permanently grounded by her favorite airline, the Mirror reports.

British Airways has banned the cantankerous catwalker to "send out a worldwide signal that such behavior is totally unacceptable," a source told the paper. But the international jet-setter, who's out on bail until May, still wants to make up, saying through a rep she's been a "good customer" since she was 7 years old.
