British Airways crew member has been arrested on suspicion of raping an air stewardess after an off duty drinks party while on a stopover in Singapore.

BA sources said the incident took place earlier this week following a 12-hour flight from London‘s Heathrow Airport to Singapore.

After making the rape allegation, the stewardess, said to be a senior female flight attendant, was moved from the usual crew hotel The Jen Tanglin in the city and given a room at a separate hotel.

“BA had to send out a manager and replacement crew so the flight to Sydney could continue and manage the crisis.”

A British Airways spokeswoman said: “We are co-operating with the police investigation and are offering our full support to our cabin crew.

“As it is a live investigation we won’t be commenting further.”

QUESTIONING: The alleged offender is said to still be in custody

The staff involved are reportedly part of the airline’s “Mixed Fleet” crew which is mostly made up of young stewards and stewardesses.

They are usually on lower wages than more senior crew.

Last year BA bosses warned mixed crew fleets that drunken antics were getting so bad that they were affecting the airline’s reputation and ability to deliver a first class service to passengers.
