Let’s start out with the fact that this story comes courtesy of The New York Post / The Sun and the anonymous crew member is trying to sell a book..so reader beware! A UK based flight attendant (could be British Airways or Virgin Atlantic based on the non-stop fights that are mentioned to Barbados, LAX, and Hong Kong…though the inclusion of a Singapore flight as well likely means this is BA despite other details pointing to Virgin being the more likely culprit) is sharing some pretty salacious details about her colleagues.
Apparently, one flight attendant was making money by having sex with first and business class passengers.
“She only got sacked because she changed hotel rooms but she hadn’t informed her [customers] that she had — and they were turning up looking for her. Another stewardess did the LA trip and she had a nice little business down there of people coming to her hotel room and having sex with her. One girl got paid working as a dominatrix.”
Then there are the cabin crew members who perform sex acts on each other, including a pilot in the back of the cockpit.
When meals have been dished out and there is a quiet point in the flight, the cabin crew worker alleges, she regularly hears of staff performing sex acts on each other in the crew rest area. “On a 747, the pilots have bunkbeds at the back of the cockpit and the captain was seeing a stewardess and there were two pilots taking over for the captain to have a break. They let him and the girl go into the bedroom mid-flight, it was all safe, but I believe the bedroom was rocking and it wasn’t turbulence!”
Shenanigans also apparently ensue upon arrival in a foreign country with many crew under 21:
“The younger fleet are aged under 21 so can’t go out and drink, so many of them have room parties. This is where many of the pilots will get their claws into them, basically. There’s been a couple of threesomes. It’s a new destination, new people, exciting times and you have the leery flight deck.”
