British Airways Crew Makes Up Armed Robbery Story To Cover Up A Night Full Of Drugs And Alcohol: Report


Police has accused crew of the British Airways for making up an armed robbery case in Rio De Janerio to cover up a wild night which consisted of alcholo and drugs, according to The Independent.

According to the report, ‘Passengers were left stranded in the Brazilian city for 24 hours after three workers reported being too traumatised to work after becoming victims of a robbery on 5 September.’

Following that the British Airways, was reportedly forced to postpone flight BA248 back to Heathrow Airport for 24 hours, as the staff weren’t due to work the next day.

The report added, ‘Now the unnamed Britons have been accused by police of ‘inventing’ the armed robbery to avoid being punished by bosses after allegedly finding inconsistencies in their stories.’

However the Brazilian authorities have claimed that out of the 3 incidents that the crew claimed only one had actually happened and added that the group went a abandoned petrol station to take drugs.

In a statement to The Independent, the Civil Police of the State of Rio de Janeiro said, ‘After field investigation and intelligence work, data crossing and image analysis, the Special Tourism Support Delegation (Deat) found that three flight attendants from an English company, who reported having been robbed in September this year lied in their testimony when recording the incident. According to Deat, of the various crimes reported by the trio, only one occurred, after a late night in which they consumed drugs and alcohol and went to an abandoned gas station, close to a community in Rio, where they continued their drug use. The trio are being investigated for falsely reporting a crime’

At the same time the British Airways in a statement has said, this is a matter for the police and that the flight attendants involved were not scheduled for the 6 September flight.
