British Airways Staff Gets Drunk on Flight
A drunken British Airways cabin crew got out of control, while off-duty, on a recent flight from London to Washington D.C.
According to the Daily Mail, stewards and stewardesses were getting drunk off bottles of champagne and red wine in first class cabins.
Passengers said the British Airways staff was acting "like spoiled brats," which included "kissing" and "heavy petting."
The airline is investigating the incident, which happened when the off-duty crew flew on Jan. 26.
First class passengers paying up to $10,000 per seat were unable to sleep after the on-duty flight attendant told the off-duty crew that they could have no more to drink, which sparked an angry shouting match.
"They were behaving like drunken spoilt brats and were incredibly unprofessional," one passenger told The Sun. "They were running up and down the aisles, falling over and disturbing passengers. They let the airline down badly."
"We apologize to customers," said a British Airways spokesperson. "We’re investigating and will take any appropriate action."
Earlier this month, an off-duty British Airways pilot was suspended after allegedly molesting a female passenger.
In January, a British Airways flight had to make an emergency landing because two drunken middle-aged passengers, who swore in front of children, refused to return to their seats and tried to force their way into the cockpit.
