Rowdy British Airways Crews Could Lead to Cancelled Route

Mike Wilkinson/Bloomberg via Getty Images(LONDON) -- Some British Airways crew members seem to party too hearty on the road, and that could affect the airline's bottom line.

In the worst-case scenario, British Airways may have to cut its route to Nairobi, which brings in millions of dollars to the airline annually, because of complaints about cabin crew holding rowdy parties in five-star hotels, according to The Daily Mail. According to the newspaper, some crew member even went topless in the hotel pool.

Captains have been warned to reign in their teams on overnight stops after reports of wild, alcohol-fueled behavior around the pool.

A British Airways internal memo suggests the problem behavior may be caused by "mixed fleets" made up of young recruits aged 18-20, The Daily Mail reports.

In the airline's memo, a manager says the contract between British Airways and its crew hotel in Nairobi may be in jeopardy if the bad behavior continues.

"Should they choose to terminate our contract, or elect not to renew it later this year, the route will become financial unviable," the memo says, according to The Daily Mail.
