BRITAIN'S LIGHT-FINGERED business travellers do not stop at stealing soap and shampoo from hotels: swag last year also included paintings from toilets, Victorian ceramic taps and even a door.

The habits of guests who leave their rooms with more than happy memories were revealed by a survey of Business Traveller magazine readers. More than 80 per cent steal some sort of souvenir, with 71 per cent taking toiletries, 55 per cent stationery, and 9 per cent taking hangers.

London's Inter-Continental won the Best Business Hotel award, British Airways was voted the World's Best Airline for the 11th year running and Virgin Atlantic won the Best Airline for Business Class.

London's Heathrow was runner-up for the Best Airport Worldwide, after Singapore's Changi. But Heathrow was worst for luggage retrieval. New York's JFK wiped the floor as the Worst Airport in the World.
