BA issue handcuff amnesty for staff
British Airways have announced a handcuff amnesty for staff after 255 pairs of cuffs went missing.
A spokeswoman told Ananova 17 pairs had been used to restrain unruly passengers, but the other pairs were missing.
She said staff would not be punished in any way if they return any company handcuffs they may have.
A memo in Cabin Crew News suggested either a large number of cuffs were used in restraint, or BA employed a lot of fetishists.
The memo in the internal magazine, written by Simon Packer, head of BA's Safety and Evacuation Systems. said: "Your exotic practices in the bedroom are your own business, but please stick to the Ann Summers furry handcuffs. Replacing the ones from the restraint kit is costing BA a fortune."
The BA spokeswoman told Ananova: "Clearly our crew are so professional, they practise restraint procedures at home."

I always thought removing safety equipment from an aircraft was a "Capital Crime" ?
