The link actually says a "senior BA employee", not manager...

Makes you wonder what other ''activities'' are ongoing by senior employees of any company. Doesn't drug running require the same style of clandestine operation (both on the inside and outside) as running things wot go bang etc. You are as secure as your people will allow.

Had stuff knicked out of my checked baggage at LHR many moons ago. It was recovered, and the subsequent chat with the Thames Valley police revealed a highly organised ring of baggage handlers going for IDs and travellers' checks. Not only that, but the police were also able to tell me the whereabouts of my extranged wife at the time, so I could serve the divorce papers .....
