Offloading liquor......why?

Why would the crew offload (stealing) aircraft liquor in spite of the risk of being caught and dismissed from the company?

In my opinion, these are the reasons:


  • It's free of charge
  • Easy access to the a/c bar
  • Poor accounting practice
  • Liquor is very expensive
  • The crew is an alcoholic
  • One could also sell them to a pub/bar at outstations (100% profit)
  • The risk of getting caught is very slim ( less than 5%)
  • It's convenient to put the bottles in one's bag than to go out to the shops and buy them (convenience)


How were the crew caught?
  • Sometimes SQ arranges with the overseas authorities to let them apprehend the crew
  • Other crew reported to SIA about the offloading
  • Crew apprehended by custom personnel
