BA air steward’s £50K first day blunder
Boeing 777 long haul airliner operated by British Airways at London Heathrow Airport.
As bad first days at work go, it would be hard to beat one employee’s debut flight as a BA steward flying from Heathrow Airport to Lagos earlier this month.
Accidentally opening a door as the plane taxied, the emergency slide deployed with airport services activated to attend, only realising no evacuation was required when arriving at Boeing 777.
It was immediately apparent the plane was going nowhere for a while, with engineers required to remove the slide and a replacement required before take-off. Passengers were told they faced a four-hour wait with a new slot required, a decision then made to transfer to a substitute jet to complete the journey to Nigeria – minus the errant steward.
According to The Sun, the total cost was estimated at £50,000 (approx. €57,000), with a new slide needed on the original plane, switching aircraft, and a new take-off slot required.
