Cathay cracks down on light-fingered cabin crew

Cathay Pacific has started getting tough with light-fingered cabin crew.

Crew members have been swiping a wide range of items from the cabin, from ice cream, booze, stationery, cutlery and food.

It has been costing 'untold hundreds of millions' over many years, the carrier says.

A recent crackdown snared at least six flight attendants who now face possible disciplinary action, which could lead to termination.

"In view of an increasing number of reported losses of company property, we have informed our cabin crew that random inspections will be carried out,' an airline statement said.

"We are dealing with cases in a fair and reasonable manner in accordance with standard internal procedure."

Among the most prized items to take are tubs of Häagen-Dazs ice cream and bottles of champagne.

Earlier this year the airline informed the workforce a 'zero tolerance' policy would be introduced and it has union support.

  • Big company thinking

    Of course staff of any company should never steal from their employer regardless of their wage or how big the company is. This however is typical of a big company on wondering why they are not making as much money and wondering where they can save. I'm sure if a big company pays their employees enough and feeds them well when on duty the staff would have no desire to steal. They are saying it is costing them hundreds of millions which is absolute nonsense. Get the simple things right and everything else will look after itself.
