Is a no event... they were naked, not wearing any uniform, hence they could even sue the hotel for breaking their privacy.
BA should stay out of it, everybody has is own private life, might give them a reprimand, or someone is saying that everybody that is acting unruly in a pub or in a hotel when not in service should be sacked?

not the same at all, it’s fairly obvious who a crew are in a hotel and they still represent the company downroute - they are still at work.

i used to enjoy all this stuff 20 years ago, but woe betide anyone waking me up these days

There is indeed hypocrisy and double standards going on here. We rightly expect pax to respect the authority of the crew whilst onboard the aircraft and equally rightly ensure that any pax who is disruptive on non compliant is heavily sanctioned.

But when it some to the crew behaving like drunken louts and disrupting other people's rest (including other aircrew no doubt) it's "just letting off steam"? (Never mind that fact that the alcohol involved was "smuggled" off the aeroplane - is that another word for "stolen"?)

They're on the company's time and representatives of the company and the industry. It's entirely proper that this become a disciplinary issue.

I have no doubt that my comments will be met with choruses of "bet you're great fun downroute" etc - I am great fun when it's appropriate but I also know when to keep my head down and behave responsibly and would fully expect to be sanctioned / sacked if I stepped across the line.

OH
Indeed, I agree with your comments which is why I stated "within limits".


There is a fine line between "fun" and being able to enjoy the evening without disrupting others.

I MIGHT tell you what I saw a Gulf Air crew getting up to in a Hong Kong hotel back in 1989!
Back in my long haul days what went on down route stayed down route. But then we didn't have social media and other technology, we managed with Kodak Brownie cameras.

​​​​​​And even then, the chances were good the film processing lab wouldn't return the photos and bin them.

Spare a thought for the girls in the 70s were sexual assault was part of the job description and accidental coffee pot spillage was the only remedy...
I've heard some of those stories (from ex-PAWA cabin crew, not BA), and they are indeed appalling. Those may have been the good old days for the people who were dishing it out. Definitely not for those who were forced to take it.

Naked BA longhaul crew? I get some very disturbing pictures in my head!

They should claim insanity by fatigue and sue the company.

In 1989, every layover in Gulf Air was a party........the beach and surrounding bushes in AUH Gulf Hotel only came to life about 0200 local. Rababa - ah, happy days!!

TFE731 - are you M or S?

Easy for you to say when you're not in a room next to theirs, trying to get some sleep before your 5AM (or earlier) call!

I don't know how employment works in Alabama, but in England and Wales, gross misconduct is a dismissable offence and running down a hotel corridor, naked, certainly falls under that category. You don't need to be in uniform, if you are representing your company (and checking in as staff would likely meet that test), then it is expected that the behaviour would be appropriate.

What you do, discreetly, is of course your own business, so long as it does not break any laws.

Other people got away with it before and that's okay to me. Young people just like to party.

Funny old world. When their is a room party everyone gets upset due noise, with threats of dismissal. When the hotel has a function with lots of noise. That is OK. Well as far as airline management are concerned.

“Three British Airways cabin crew face the sack”, is that some new development in the game where the three were sitting on the floor while another player walks by with bollocks at eye height ?
