The incidents of note:
In Johannesburg, a cabin crew member allegedly plucked an expensive Koi Karp from the hotel pond and threw it into a swimming pool where it died. Again, the incident was linked to drunkeness and of course, British Airways yet again had to fire the staff member involved.
And in Singapore, the airline has now apparently run out of chances with the hotel it once held a contract with. Sources tell us that hotel management were furious when a female crew member allegedly ran through the hotel’s lobby in just her underwear as part of a drunken challenge. There are even allegations the same crew member urinated in public.
[In Kenya, o]ff-duty flight attendants were said to have held a wild party around the hotel’s swimming pool – resulting in property being damaged and one member of cabin crew even breaking their arm. Hotel bosses were said to be so disgusted, they threatened to end the airline’s contract unless immediate action was taken.
I thought crew members were supposed to be company representatives and on their best behavior during layovers? I remember during the Dr. Dao/ United incident and during incidents of unruly pax behavior, some a.netters were calling for those pax to be fired from their jobs. Do a.netters feel the say way here? Mind you, in one of those incidents above, the crew member involved was fired by BA.
Also, just as in interesting note, these crew members seem to be with Mixed Fleet.
