British Airways pilots said they were too tired to fly from UK to NYC after being kept up all night by prostitutes. They claim they were put up in a hotel used by ladies of the night who made a fearful racket. It was unquiet and the felt unsafe. Some claimed their doors would not lock and pimps kept trying to get in their rooms, so they had to “erect makeshift barricades”
Initially sympathetic, British Airways is considering disciplinary action and suspension after learning nine other pilots slept at the same hotel without incident.
Memo to British Airways: Hotels that charge by the hour do not good captain’s quarters make.
