British Airways yesterday confirmed that it has launched an inquiry into leaflets telling staff how they can make extra money by delaying flights, including aircraft sabotage.

Police have been brought in to investigate the leaflets, which have been circulating inside the company for weeks.

BA yesterday described the leaflets, entitled "Chaos", as black propaganda and they were also condemned by unions. The company emphasised leaflet did not present any serious threat either to British Airways employees or the public.

The leaflet includes a series of tips on how to hold up flights so that crew could charge overtime. One section says: "A particularly obnoxious captain can be made to suffer all the symptoms of violent food poisoning simply by emptying eye drops from the aircraft medical kit into his salad or drink."

Other tips included placing superglue on toilet seats, putting duvet feathers in an engine to give the impression that a flock of birds had been hit and putting economy passengers in club class.
